Policy Statement

Regardless of the device type, reasonable steps must be followed to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data residing on and transmitted through electronic devices.  Generally speaking, all devices must:

  • Be protected by an access-authorization mechanism such as PIN or username/password combination
  • Have encrypted storage devices where applicable
  • Must not be left in a location that permits casual, unapproved physical access to the device
  • Must not be configured to permit casual, unapproved network access to the device

Specific practices and requirements of broad categories of devices are included as sub-policies within the Device Security policy.
