Protecting (Encrypting?) A Cloned Drive

I use Super Duper to create a bootable backup on an external 2.5" drive. The drive travels with me, so in case the drive on my MacBookPro fails, I can simply boot off that without skipping a beat. However, it occured to me that if I were to lose my briefcase or if that drive were to fall into someone's hands, they could easily access all the information. Is there a way to protect a bootable backup drive, both for authentication and encryption?

(As I'm writing this I'm thinking, the solution is probably to just use File Vault?)
