Online security is always a concern, but not everyone considers the safety of the files on their computer.

Dick Eastman is not only a well-known genealogist but a techie as well. Mr. Eastman recently wrote an interesting article about The Ultimate Security for Your Data. He covers use of encryption software to protect information on your computer’s hard drive and gives suggestions for both Apple and Microsoft computers.
