CIT is installing hard drive encryption software on all Calvin-owned laptops.
Why is CIT doing this?
None of us want to see an article in the Grand Rapids Press "Calvin College loses 4,200 Social Security Numbers". Because we take laptops off campus and they can more easily be stolen or lost, the Information Services Committee has approved a project for CIT to encrypt the hard-drives of Calvin laptop computers. This security measure will protect any confidential information on the hard-drive even if it is lost or stolen.
If you have questions about laptop encryption please contact the HelpDesk.
