 Backups tapes a backdoor

"Even without evidence of theft, the lack of encryption is disturbing, if entirely expected, said Jon Oltsik, senior research analyst for the Enterprise Strategy Group. The analyst firm polled almost 400 companies and found that, despite renewed focus on securing customer data, more than 60 percent of the companies do not encrypt any of their backup data, and only 7 percent actually encrypt all their backup data. (Not sure I buy into this. It just shows that physical security is also important for backup media. - Noel)"
