Bitlocker Encryption (Windows)
Available To: Faculty, Staff
Laptop encryption is critical for laptops that have
sensitive or valuable data, however ITS only recommends encrypting laptops that
will be joined to the NAU domain.
Now is the time to add encryption to your normal
setup procedures for Dell laptops in your area. Please see the documentation
below. If you would like assistance with the encryption process, the PC Support
team is happy to help. Contact the ITS Solution Center or place an SOS ticket
If you have a pressing reason to not encrypt
laptops for your area, please contact the ITS Information Security team for
Security for your computers and information, including SSL certificates.
