Self-Encrypted Drives Set to Become Standard Fare

PC World says: Samsung just introduced at CES it's a 256-bit self-encrypted series of USB 3.0 hard drives. The drives include three new external drives, in 1TB, 1.5TB, and 2TB. The drives come with Samsung's auto-backup software, and Samsung SecretZone for creating a secure virtual drive, and SafetyKey for setting up passwords and encrypted data backup.


If you lose your computer but the data on it are encrypted, 45 states have a safe harbor for encrypted data that gets compromised, reports PC World. Notification requirements about personal data that gets compromised are onerous, not to mention embarrassing.
