In our previous blogs we have spoken about cyber hackers, passwords, security and encryption. But, today we will tell you what encryption is and how it works.
"Encryption is the most effective way to achieve data security. To read an encrypted file, you must have access to a secret key or password that enables you to decrypt it. Unencrypted data is called plain text; encrypted data is referred to as cipher text." - definition according to Webopedia
