Personally Owned Devices (phone, tablet, laptop, etc.)

Description of Service: 

Any mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or other computing device that you own or use that is not owned by the university, including those for which the university pays a partial stipend.

Description of Compliance: 

Personally owned devices typically should not be used to maintain or share the university’s sensitive data. In some cases, instructors may need to make use of Student Educational Records (protected by FERPA) on their personal devices in the course of their teaching. This may be done if the device is appropriately secured.

It is recommended that you secure your personal devices to protect both the university's data and your own.
