The My Devices service lets Stanford affiliates who are subject to Stanford's information security mandates view the compliance status of their devices.
The University established a goal of verifiably encrypting all faculty, staff, and post-doc Windows and Macintosh computers, and iOS and Android mobile devices that are used on the campus network. This requirement applies to both Stanford and personally owned computers that are used for Stanford activities on the campus network, other than those granted exceptions due to special requirements. All laptops, desktops, and mobile devices used to access, transmit, or store High Risk Data, as defined by the Information Security Office, should be encrypted by now.
With the My Devices app, Stanford community members can look up the devices associated with them that are registered on the Stanford network. My Devices displays the encryption status of these devices, so that device owners take action, if necessary, to comply with the encryption requirement.
See the Encryption at Stanford page for more information about how to comply with the information security requirements.
