The Massachusetts State Law requires all laptops with PII (Personally Identifiable Information) to be encrypted. OVC/DSL has broadened that scope to include all computers to be encrypted.
Encryption provides a high level password-protected method of protecting all data on your computer.
All Windows computers will be encrypted using Bitlocker which is built into the Microsoft Windows Operating System.
All MacOS computers will be encrypted using FileVault which is built into the Apple Macintosh Operating System.
We highly recommend you contact OVC Desktop Support prior to making any changes to your encryption settings.
