Encryption and data management
There’s been a big move towards getting any hardware (laptops, USBs, hard drives) to get encrypted by IT services regardless if the device is university owned or it’s your own Commodore 64.
Is it necessary? And do we have to? The short answer is “Yes”.
Whether you’re first in line or dragged kicking and screaming, it’s a requirement now for any PGR to get their stuff encrypted. For more info please see http://www.itservices.manchester.ac.uk/secure-it/!
