Device Encryption Procedure


Encryption provides strong protection by making data inaccessible to those without proper credentials. Persons with sensitive information on their computers should use encryption to keep their files secure. As with any encryption, it is very important never to lose the password, or it would be impossible to access that data without it.


All college owned/state owned devices provided directly to employees of the college will be encrypted per federal, state, SUNY policies and comply with NIST standards for device encryption.
