  • PIs conducting research secured with a TCP are responsible for ensuring all personnel complete the required training.
  • Please contact Export Control with questions.

Encryption Guide

Federal regulations and university policy requires restricted data (e.g. HIPAA, Export Control, etc.) to be encrypted at certain levels depending on the type of data The below resource guide was developed to assist faculty, staff, and students in protecting restricted data. There is a great variety of encryption methods available depending on your computer configuration; this guide does not cover every single method. Please contact the appropriate compliance partner (e.g. Export Control or HIPAA) for guidance on the encrypting level requirements in the regulations. For technical assistance contact your Unit’s IT Manager or the 24/7 IT Support Center.
