Encrypting the hard disc of your laptop (Windows / Mac)
If you work with data other than public data, and you work on a laptop, you must encrypt the hard disc of your laptop. If you use a laptop provided by the EUR, please contact USC Front Office for practical assistance. Please expect the procedure to take 30 minutes.
If you are allowed to work on your own laptop (Bring Your Own Device), and you work with data other than public data, you must yourself see to it that the hard disc of your laptop is encrypted. See here for the manual for a laptop using Windows 7 and here for your Mac.
