Your employer is pleased that you have become CISSP certified and would now like you to evaluate your company's security policy. Your boss believes that encryption should be used for all network traffic and that a $50,000 encrypted database should replace the current customer database. Based on what you know about risk management, what should your decision to use encryption and purchase the new database be based on? Choose the most correct answer.
