Samford University is continuing to improve its IT security posture by reducing risk. To protect University data, University-owned computers used by employees will be encrypted. The priority goes to department machines that may hold sensitive University information. Technology Services has been testing its new encryption system from WinMagic, which will manage encryption of disk storage on Windows and Mac systems, both laptop and desktop computers. Technology Services and Accounting department computers are now encrypted, and we are continuing deployment to all employee machines. We will soon begin to include encryption on all replacement computers when they are delivered.
