Traveling with APU information presents security concerns. Encrypted devices help to reduce risk of loss or theft of private or proprietary information. The IMT Support Center can help you to encrypt your devices before scheduled travel.

Officials in some countries inspect electronic devices and may download material from them. Some countries have encryption import restrictions that prevent you from encrypting data on your device.

Protect yourself and the university by not taking any sensitive or private information with you.
