Encryption provides an easy-to-use and secure means to protect Sensitive and High Risk data on computers. Laptops and desktop computers can be lost, stolen or have hard drives removed. Many other scenarios can also jeopardize the privacy and security of your important data.
Users with FERPA, HIPAA, intellectual property, research data, and other sensitive information can use encryption to protect their data. In many cases, encryption is required to comply with the UIC IT Security Program, legal, regulatory, or grant requirements.
