|Encryption is a technology that prevents unauthorized access to the data on
your computer. While the safest place to store sensitive data is on a secure,
university-hosted file share, encryption can prevent data stored on your own
computer from falling into the wrong hands if the computer is lost or stolen.
For university-owned computers running Windows Vista or later, Microsoft BitLocker disk encryption technology is available.
Macs running OS X 10.7 or later can enable FileVault to encrypt the hard drive contents.
Queries related to data encryption should be directed to the Call Center or your IT Liaison as appropriate.
