Non-Linux FOSS: TrueCrypt
TrueCrypt is a fully open-source tool for encrypting data. That data can be on a completely encrypted hard drive, or just an encrypted image file. Thankfully, the encryption works the same regardless of your platform, so Windows and OS X users can share encrypted files between computers.
We really like to use TrueCrypt in combination with Dropbox, another cross-platform tool, to protect our data in the cloud. Pictured here is the OS X version of TrueCrypt, mounting an encrypted image as a local hard drive. Whether you are storing sensitive data or Grandma's secret recipe, TrueCrypt can keep your data private, even if it's stored on someone else's server.
