The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has approved several encryption programs. LSU IT security professionals suggest use of these technologies to maintain compliance with LSU Policy Statement 107.
In addition, if you are required to store confidential / sensitive information on an electronic device, you should protect yourself and the University by encrypting the data when it is not in use. A list of data protection products can be found at Data Encryption.
For information on recommended encryption programs, see our GROK article.
