We are thinking about using TruEncrypt full disk encryption to protect the data on our laptops (roughly 15-20 in the healthcare field - XP & Win7). And I was wonder about backups, and not per say the method or the use of a product like TruEncrypt.
Should all laptops be backup before the encryption? And then backup after the encryption? (Clonezilla/Acronis) I am worried about accessing the data if the laptop's hd starts to fail or hd corruption ... and will we be able to recover the data even with the encrypted hd dying. Is it possible to recover the data when hdd's fail or get corrupted?
Backups with be encrypted.. and Recovery disks will get backed up too.
