BitLocker Disk Encryption

BitLocker is Microsoft's disk encryption tool that is designed to safely protect all the data stored on a hard drive. When the entire hard disk is encrypted, everything on that disk is protected if the computer is lost or stolen.

CSU Chico provides BitLocker file encryption for managed university computers. Contact your desktop IT staff or IT Support Services (ITSS) to enable this important service.
