The purpose of this policy is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive information through appropriate encryption and key management practices.
This policy applies to all employees, contractors, and third-party vendors who have access to sensitive information.
All sensitive information must be encrypted using a strong encryption algorithm and appropriate key length. The encryption and decryption keys must be managed securely to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information.
4.1. Key generation
Encryption keys must be generated using a strong random number generator that complies with industry standards. Keys must be unique and not reused.
4.2. Key storage
Encryption keys must be stored securely in a key management system that provides access control, logging, and auditing capabilities. Keys must be protected from unauthorized access, modification, and deletion.
4.3. Key distribution
Encryption keys must be distributed securely to authorized personnel only. Keys must be transmitted over secure channels and protected from interception, tampering, and loss.
4.4. Key rotation
Encryption keys must be rotated periodically based on the level of sensitivity of the information they protect. The frequency of key rotation must be defined in the data classification policy.
4.5. Key destruction
Encryption keys must be destroyed securely when they are no longer needed. Key destruction must be logged and audited.
Non-compliance with this policy may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment or contract.
