Encrypting data is the best mitigation plan you can provide data that is on hardware not in your control. Risk matrices consist of condition-consequence pairs, exposures, contingency and mitigation plans. In the case of data stored on devices like tapes, removable hard drives and small portable storage cards, encryption is your best bet to keep the data from prying eyes. Encryption is a simple process where a free-text key is used to safeguard the data in a scrambled fashion. Unscrambling it allows it to be read.
