Is your backup secure? Yes.

CrashPlan uses 448-bit file encryption so your data stays encrypted until you need it restored. CrashPlan is also approved for FERPA data, if the user has prior approval. However, please remember that HIPAA and other sensitive data should always be stored on Piratedrive rather than your computer's hard drive or CrashPlan.
