Computer encryption is critical for systems that have sensitive or valuable data. However, ITS only recommends encrypting Windows 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 drop down below titled "BitLocker Encryption (Windows)" for more information. If you would like assistance with the encryption process, the Desktop Supports teams are happy to help. Contact the ITS Solution Center at 928-523-1511 or place a ServiceNow ticket for assistance.

If you have a pressing reason to not encrypt laptops for your area, please contact the ITS Information Security team for more information.
