Desktop Encryption

In order to help departments comply with applicable privacy legislation, ITS offers the University of Toronto IT community recommendations and guidelines on how to configure full disk encryption. Full disk encryptions encrypt all of the data on the hard drive in a single, initial pass called 'conversion'. Once this conversion is complete, all subsequent encryption and decryption operations are transparent to the user. Full disk encryption is considered the best practice for maintaining the integrity of sensitive data-at-rest by protecting all of the data that is saved on the disk. This includes operating system files, temporary data, recycled files, paging and hibernation files, and the Windows registry.
