Which Companies Encrypt Your Data Communications

As a cyber risk leader, with all the NSA snoop­ing going on, you need to know which ser­vice providers are pro­tect­ing your data as it scoots around the Inter­net.

Good news! The Elec­tron­ic Fron­tier Foun­da­tion (EFF) has pub­lished a use­ful info­graph­ic to help you fig­ure out where you stand. Note:

  • Dou­ble-check miss­ing and planned items with your ser­vice providers.
  • Cur­rent­ly, only 8 of the providers offer all five encryp­tion strate­gies rec­om­mend­ed by the EFF.
  • Com­pa­nies that have firm plans with dates have been award­ed a green box.
  • There are quite a few notes at the bot­tom that you should look at.
  • AT&T, Com­cast, and Ver­i­zon have imple­ment­ed none of the strate­gies. Is there some indus­try rea­son?

Here are short def­i­n­i­tions and links for each strat­e­gy:

The EFF pub­lished their info­graph­ic as part of an arti­cle. They’ve updat­ed it many times already.

Did any­thing you see in the info­graph­ic make you want to switch providers? Which ones?
