Mobile Device Encryption

Service Description

Encrypting mobile devices makes it impossible for someone to access the data held on them without knowing the password. This makes them secure in the case of loss or theft, and is required, by law, for any device which contains confidential information, and in particular personal information.

Encryption capabilities are built into every major mobile operating systems, from Windows 7 and Mac OSX (for laptops) to mobile operating systems like iOS, Android, and Blackberry. Although encryption can be applied by the end user, Discovery Commons technicians are ready to help in case there are questions, or to perform the encryption on University-owned computers.
