As HSPH faculty and staff begin heading out for the summer, we want to remind everyone of some important information security policies.
- Harvard policy requires that all Harvard-owned laptops must be encrypted. If your laptop is not encrypted, please call our Helpdesk (432-help) to arrange for laptop encryption.
- If you are traveling outside of the U.S. with an encrypted laptop or device, please consult the following link for some important information:
- High Risk Confidential Information should not be stored on any mobile device (laptop, netbook, smart phone, USB key, etc.)
- This fall the Information Technology Department will resume hosting information security briefings to update the HSPH community on new policies and changes regarding data security.
