System admin can manage Data Encryption through Settings à Data Management à Data Encyrption area.

To programmatically retrieve and update the Encryption key we can use the RetrieveDataEncryptionKeyRequest and SetDataEncryptionKeyRequest

RetrieveDataEncryptionKeyRequest retrieveDataEncryptionKeyRequest = new RetrieveDataEncryptionKeyRequest();

IOrganizationService organizationService = RetrieveOrganizationService();

RetrieveDataEncryptionKeyResponse retrieveDataEncryptionKeyResponse =

(RetrieveDataEncryptionKeyResponse)organizationService.Execute(retrieveDataEncryptionKeyRequest);

MessageBox.Show(retrieveDataEncryptionKeyResponse.EncryptionKey);

 

SetDataEncryptionKeyRequest setDataEncryptionKeyRequest = new SetDataEncryptionKeyRequest();

setDataEncryptionKeyRequest.ChangeEncryptionKey = true;

setDataEncryptionKeyRequest.EncryptionKey = "Pass@word1";

SetDataEncryptionKeyResponse setDataEncryptionKeyResponse =

(SetDataEncryptionKeyResponse) organizationService.Execute(setDataEncryptionKeyRequest);
