Secure Your Devices

Securing your devices doesn’t just mean keeping them in a safe place, it means setting a password, backing up your data, choosing appropriate privacy and access settings, deciding what networks to connect to, and more.

Personal Devices

See these guidelines to help you secure your own devices:

Work Devices

  • MiWorkspace. If you are in a MiWorkspace-managed department, your neighborhood IT staff will ensure that your work devices are properly secured.
  • Michigan Medicine. Health Information Technology & Services provides devices to Michigan Medicine faculty and staff and is primarily responsible for the maintenance and security standards of those devices.
  • Other U-M Devices. Other guidelines may apply to other University-Owned Devices.
