Summary

Encryption provides strong protection by making data inaccessible to those without proper access credentials. Persons with any sensitive information on their computer should use encryption to keep their files secure. As with any encryption, it is very important to never lose the password or it would be impossible to access that data without it.

Policy

All college owned/state owned devices provided directly to employees of the college will be encrypted. Windows computers will utilize BitLocker; Mac computers will utilize FileVault 2. CIT will maintain a secure database of encryption recovery keys.
