Concordia Data Encryption Policy
To remain compliant with FERPA, no Concordia University employee, partner, vendor or any party with the responsibility to handle data that is considered sensitive or contains PII will transport that data without the use of encryption.
It is acceptable to encrypt data files individually or to store unencrypted data files on encrypted storage volumes.
Microsoft and Adobe offer natively available methods for encrypting individual data files such as Word, Excel and PDF documents. More information on these methods is available in the link below.
Currently, all personal CU Windows 10 machines are encrypted by default with Bitlocker. For assistance or questions regarding this disk encryption, please contact the Tech Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
