Encrypting a device prevents the data on the device from being accessed should the device be lost or stolen. Some devices come with encryption turned on by default Other devices must be encrypted manually.
Encryption scrambles data. This makes it unreadable and only accessible to those with the decryption key or password. Without it, if a device is lost, the storage may be removed and data inside read.
By enabling encryption for devices, this ensures any data saved to the device is safe.
Behaviours in SebDB are ranked by their impact on risk. Tier 1 behaviours have the biggest impact, Tier 4 behaviours the least.
