Encryption has Been Around for Thousands of Years
Encryption...is often assumed to be so entwined with computers that we forget that this cornerstone of cybersecurity is thousands of years old. It is claimed that Histiaeus, a Greek ruler in the 6th Century, tattooed a military message on the shaved head of a slave before waiting for the hair to grow back and sending the slave to his ally with a message to remove his hair and read the secret mission.

Although encryption is used in a different capacity today compared to how it was used hundreds / thousands of years ago, encryption is still used to slip by existing defences and extract valuable information that is detrimental to the privacy of companies and individuals.
