Review the encryption requirements


Encryption is a required data safeguard for school-issued devices.

Ensure compliance in three steps:

1. See if your device is already encrypted.

2. If necessary, encrypt your device using Bitlocker or FileVault.

3. Install OnGuard to access the UCLAHealthSecure wireless network.
