Do you really need encryption

If you do need to encrypt data you have several options. One option would be to purchase an encrypted USB stick.​For information on alternative options (such as encrypting drives on your laptop), please contact the Computer Centre​

​Don't encrypt in place of securing access

​If the data i​s stored on Brunel's systems, it is already secure, and should not normally need to be encrypted.

Data stored online

​Accessing data via https (check the website address) ensures that data is secure in transit. For this reason, it may often be advisable to store data in a secure Brunel web repository.One option would be to make use of a personal MySite​​. Another option would be to store your files in a Team Site. For more information about Team Sites contact the IntraBrunel project team​.
