The Desktop Support group supports clients in setting up and maintaining systems that are secure for use with confidential information. Consistent with University policy, all University laptops and all desktop systems with access to IQSS/HMDC file services must be configured securely.
For laptop and desktop systems, the following are required:
To get File Vault and/or Bitlocke installed on your laptop please contact us.
For any portable storage device, the following is required:
Any portable media housing confidential information should be encrypted appropriately, either through hardware encryption (such as Ironkey devices) or with software encryption using PGP Desktop or Truecrypt.
Note: No high-risk confidential information (HRCI) should be stored on personal laptops or desktops or portable storage devices. HRCI may be stored on designated and approved servers only.
For assistance with secure system set up, please contact us.
