Technology Writing Firm Produces New Guide that Makes Data Encryption and Enterprise Data Protection Fun and Accessible for Businesses of All Sizes

McLellan Creative, a leading marketing communications firm serving many of the world's most innovative technology companies, partnered with PGP®, Inc., the leading enterprise data protection company and Wiley Publishing, Inc., to create the new Data Encryption for Dummies® guide.

The Data Encryption for Dummies guide explains in clear and friendly language the complex topic of data encryption and how it protects an organization's confidential information. The book introduces critical data security issues and provides practical information and recommendations for using data encryption to prevent data breaches and reduce overall business risks. The book has been an instant success for PGP.

"Data Encryption for Dummies has become PGP's runaway marketing weapon," said Kevin Bocek, PGP's Senior Product Marketing Manager. "It differentiates PGP in the marketplace and makes encryption and enterprise data protection fun and instantly accessible to a wide variety of business decision makers. The guide has also been a great door opener to CEOs and CFOs at a broad range of corporations."

Published by Wiley & Sons, Inc., Data Encryption for Dummies joins the For Dummies series, which has become widely recognized around the world. Starting with the publication of DOS for Dummies in November 1991, For Dummies products have shown millions of readers how to make the most of their PCs, get on the Internet, and explore the world of computing. Now, with more than 125 million books in print, For Dummies guides show readers how to understand a wide range of business technologies --computer programming, virtualization, office productivity guides, multimedia -- and now data encryption.

McLellan Creative was instrumental in helping PGP create the storyline for the book and wrote copy that was compelling, factual and easy for a wide audience to understand. "McLellan Creative brought talent, flexibility and a team approach that was very beneficial," said Bocek. "Unlike working with an individual writer, McLellan's team approach went beyond writing the book to serve as trusted consultants throughout the composition and editorial process."

McLellan Creative is best known for bringing the 'art of storytelling' to technology. With roots in Hollywood, Robert McLellan and his award-winning team of technology marketing writers understand the importance of finding the compelling story within each innovation. "All great marketing begins with good storytelling," explained McLellan. "We're thrilled to help PGP tell their amazing story to clients, prospects, investors and the media. With the success of Data Encryption
for Dummies, we've been approached by several technology organizations to write Dummies Guides and we have another on the drawing board for PGP."
