The UVM Information Security policy (see procedure 126.96.36.199) specifies that all university-owned laptops must use approved encryption software to protect the University (or other confidential data) that may be stored on them. CHWB stands by this policy (of course) and encrypts every laptop with BitLocker.
The products below may also be used to encrypt flash drives and other media that are used to store or transport such data.
Computers that run Windows 7 or Windows 8 should be encrypted using Microsoft BitLocker.
Macintosh computers running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or OS X 10.9 Mavericks should use FileVault 2 and Casper to encrypt and manage recovery keys.
Computers with older versions of OS X are strongly encouraged to upgrade (free through Apple Store).
