Prevent Private Key Change - GPG

Prevent Private Key Change - GPG

We want to encrypt a folder using GPG, but we want to prevent a disgruntled employee from changing the private key, encrypting the folder, and then leave the company. I know you can revoke a key pair, but that's only if you know before hand that the employee is leaving.

"I can't find any information about how to encrypt folders with GPG.

Assuming you are not yet committed to GPG, Truecrypt is an excellent open-source folder and drive encryption program which deals with this problem.

The Truecrypt FAQ describes how to reset passwords if reset by non-administrators. See the question:

We use TrueCrypt in a corporate/enterprise environment. Is there a way for an administrator to reset a volume password or pre-boot authentication password when a user forgets it (or loses a keyfile)?"
