OCAD University employees should understand that special considerations may apply when encrypted devices are taken outside of Canada. Staff and faculty must be aware of restrictions to avoid the confiscation of their device, or other penalties and should contact the countries that they are planning to visit to determine what the requirements are in those jurisdictions.Computers and laptops managed by OCAD U IT Services have encryption enabled on them. We recommend employees set up encryption on personally-owned devices if they are using them for OCAD U related work. 

Travelling to some countries with encrypted devices may not be advisable. You may want to contact IT Services well in advance (two to three weeks) of your travel if you wish to remove encryption or borrow a laptop (if available) that is not encrypted.  Please refer to the OCAD U IT Services Support Site for further details.
