Encryption in Organizations” Select one of the following and discuss in no less than three paragraphs, and have at least one response to another student of at least one paragraph:
· Suppose an executive-level manager asked you to explain the importance of encryption. Detail the key points that you would use to justify the importance of using encryption during the overall security posture analysis of the executive-level manager’s organization.
· Research the web for examples of the manner in which security professionals could use encryption in organizations today (e.g., database encryption), describe at least two uses of encryption within organizations today that you found in your research. From the uses identified, indicate the information resource the encryption is designed to protect. Assess the importance of protecting such an information resource from a security perspective.

Q3. SOC 450 Week 10 Discussion
Water covers 75% of the earth’s surface. Most of it contains high concentrations of salt and is unusable to developing countries for consumption or irrigation purposes because desalination is too expensive. Consequently, when a water source like a major river originates in one country and flows into another, the shared water source could become an issue of national security. (This means that if one country dams or diverts a shared river for irrigation purposes, it could reduce the amount of water flowing downstream to the second country). For example, nearly all of the major river systems that flow through Pakistan originate in India – or, in the case of the Indus River, in Tibet – meaning that India essentially controls Pakistan’s ability to grow food for itself.
For this week’s discussion, think of the enduring disputes taking place between Jordan and Israel (Jordan controls the headwaters of the Jordan River as it flows into Israel); Turkey and Iraq (Turkey controls the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers before they enter Iraq); and between Ethiopia and Sudan and Egypt (Ethiopia controls the flow of the Nile River before it enters Sudan and Egypt). What concerns do these downriver countries (Israel, Iraq, and Egypt/Sudan) have over freshwater access?
Review the posts of your classmates and respond to at least one other post supporting the position.
