comment Completely encrypting virtual machine (for free)
@Iszi that's what I'd use to do but TrueCrypt isn't supported anymore, plus I'm not experienced with VirtualBox so I'm not exactly sure which files I'm looking for to encrypt.

Right yes, that's what I'd do under normal circumstances EXCEPT 1)TrueCrypt is no longer supported 2)I don't have access to VMware and need to use VirtualBox

"Why not just store the image on an encrypted drive?" while I'm experienced with VMware, I'm not so with VirtualBox. I've only used PGP whole disk encryption. What does mean "encrypted drive" and how is this accomplished? Are you recommending to encrypt the guest OS, host OS, or particular files on the host OS that make up the guest OS (e.g. VirtualBox's version of .VMDK file)?

I guess what I'm asking is how do you do #2 or #3?

I disagree. Clean desk policy actually has nothing to do with a clean or messy desk. I has to do with certain information (usually text classified as confidential or protected) not being left on top of the desk or in plain view. Anyways my point is the first sentence could be better worded.

out of curiosity could you explain your thinking? If it were literally a clean desk then it would be free of germs etc. For example in this context if an employee left crumbs from a sandwich on their desk, they would not be in violation of the clean desk policy (as it applies to security).

@community please check my edit on the first sentence.

Statment was logically incorrect. The name "clean desk policy" is NOT literal, as it does not mean your desk has to be so clean you can eat off it.
