Lawyers have an enhanced need for data security. Ethical obligations and common sense tell us that we can't allow client data to be compromised. Lawyers who carry portable computers stuffed full of confidential client and law firm data have used full-disk encryption for protection. For years, TrueCrypt was a top choice for full-disk encryption software on Windows laptops.

Then in May of 2014, TrueCrypt suddenly shut down and further development was halted. The question was why? Did the developers find an unfixable vulnerability? Or was TrueCrypt too secure and the government forced a shutdown? There is much speculation, but no answer.

The wonderful How-To Geek blog recently ran a post on alternatives to TrueCrypt for full-disk encryption. It is worth reading. As it turns out, according to famed security company Gibson Research Corporation, TrueCrypt 7.1a is still a secure way to encrypt your hard drive. But there are other alternatives, including the encryption built into your operating system. The post is worth a read for security focused lawyers.
