The System Security Encryption GuidelinesĀ provides guidance for minimum data encryption requirements for use on Boise State University computing devices. To help facilitate and manage full drive encryption, Boise State now supports Windows BitLocker and Mac FileVault 2 enterprise encryption for mobile devices such as laptops. Contact Customer Care at 426-4357 for details on deploying encryption on your device.

Workforce members that use mobile computing devices (e.g. laptops, tablet computers, PDAs, smart phones) or mobile data storage devices (e.g. floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, flash memory, portable hard drives) are responsible for the protection of the data on those devices.
