Encrypting your laptop and desktop computers and mobile devices is the single most important step you can take to protect your personal information, and Stanford's data, in the event that the device is lost or stolen.
- Mobile devices: All faculty, staff and postdoc Apple and Android mobile devices used on the campus network are now subject to the verifiable encryption requirement. Mobile Device Management (MDM) is Stanford's mobile device security solution.
- Network restrictions: Access to the Stanford campus network is restricted from unencrypted laptops, desktops, and mobile devices that are subject to the requirements. On October 20, we began a rolling deployment of the mobile device encryption requirement and the unencrypted laptop/desktop/mobile device network restrictions, progressively including all employees over several months.
