Database encryption for IDMS databases

Hi all,
Our management read a security article by Gartner Group that
contained these lines:
Strategic Planning Assumption - By year-end 2007, failure to encrypt
credit card, Social Security and account numbers in databases will be
considered legal negligence and noncompliance with industry standards
(0.9 probability).
As a result, I have been tasked with looking at what options are
available for encrypting the data in our IDMS databases. A google
search for IDMS+encryption turned up nothing. I was going to search the
archives first, but it appears the IUA site is down, so I apologize if
this has been discussed already. I have to have a project proposal by
December 18.

Can anyone point me at encryption software, procedures for encrypting
data within an IDMS database, or sources that discuss IDMS data
encryption particularly pros/cons? Thanks for your help.
