Summer Security Tips

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.

Thank you,
HSPH Department of Information Technology
