Hi Lee,
You could use Oracle Advanced security for the encryption. In ASO you are 
looking at encrption at the network layer.
ASO at the network layer is very easy to configure, essentially a few 
lines in sqlnet.ora at the source and destination. You need to purchase 
ASO option for the source and most likely the data guard environment. 

See additional resources under the link:
On the same page under the "Hands-on" section click "Configuring native network 
encryption" for a 30 min tutorial. 

If ASO is cost prohibitive, you may look into setting up a secured tunnel 
(free) between the source and target database. Secured tunnel adds another 
layer to monitor/troubleshoot/fix etc. Google search "ssh secured tunnel" 
should find you plenty of links.
