Focus on Endpoint Encryption

Thursday, January 7, 2016

You've heard it before, 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 the device is lost or stolen. 


How are we doing?

December was a short month for most everyone on campus, and yet the number of non-compliant employee devices dropped by 12%.  We continue to make steady progress and are moving forward according the established schedule. 

Get Help with Encryption

To address the most commonly encountered issues when encrypting devices, a new Frequently Asked Questions page for end users and IT support teams has been published and is readily accessible via

Notifications for Non-Compliant Devices

By mid-February 2016, all Stanford staff and affiliates with a non-compliant mobile, laptop, or desktop device on the Stanford network will be notified. By March 1, 2016, all faculty will be included.
