PC Security in the Office

Access to IT assets while traveling, or at home, is widely practiced at CDC. The standard on movement of information into and out of CDC-controlled environments is an important part of the information you need to do you job properly. Please review IT Access here.

CDC Standards* state: "Encryption is required when any moderately or highly sensitive files, any moderately or highly critical information, or any limited access / proprietary information is to be transmitted either electronically or physically." This applies to laptops, PDAs, disks, and other media that is sent or carried, and, in certain instances, to data on a laptop at home or even at work. Contact your organizationís Chief Technology Officer for assistance in acquiring appropriate encryption software.
