Data Security Services / PGP

In an effort to increase data security and to protect the privacy rights of the campus community, data security services and tools are being provided for use on university-owned desktops and laptops. Please refer to the CSULB website for more details on privacy rights. The “PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) Endpoint Encryption” software solutions allow users to encrypt sensitive personal information on their laptops or workstations.

Who will use Data Security Services?

Data security services and tools are currently available to all campus community members. In some cases, managers may have already identified individuals that are required to implement this new service because of their access to sensitive information.

When you should use Data Security Services:

  • to protect data on your computer or laptop in the event that it is lost, stolen or surveyed
  • if you access other student, staff or faculty records using the internet (PeopleSoft/CMS)
  • to protect others from accessing data on your computer or laptop when it is not on
