Laptop encryption required by July 1

Campus security policies require that all mobile devices (including laptops) containing sensitive information be encrypted. The deadline for compliance is July 1.

Please stop by the OIS helpdesk in Macnider 065 to have your laptop encrypted with PGP Whole Disk Encryption. This service is currently free of charge, and your laptop will be backed up prior to encryption. Do not assume your laptop is encrypted by default. You will know that your laptop is encrypted if you see a gray PGP login screen when your laptop first boots up. If you do not see this screen, then you do not have the PGP Whole Disk Encryption software installed. If you store sensitive data on your device, and you do not want to encrypt your laptop, then you MUST remove the sensitive data. If you have any questions, please contact Lori Mahaney at
