Encrypting data is an additional method to keep sensitive information, such as FERPA-related information, research participant personal information, or job candidate information, hidden from those who do not need or should not have access to it. There are multiple ways of encrypting data, but two options that have been tested on campus are: VeraCrypt, a software-based encryption utility or hardware-based encrypted external USB flash drives.
