  • Encrypt hard drive using Whole Disk Encryption for all drives in the system
  • Must be a Purdue managed laptop or desktop
  • Must have software security updates applied every 30 days
  • Install anti-virus, anti-spyware software and ensure definitions are up to date and run regular scans; utilize an endpoint protection solution.
  • Require re-authentication after 15 minutes of inactivity
  • Enable host based firewall
  • Ensure only authorized software on systems is accessing, transmitting, storing sensitive or restricted information
  • Require Authentication from remote devices
  • Disable bluetooth on machines unless otherwise required.
  • Avoid the use of removable media unless required, in which case removable media must be encrypted.
  • Require Administrator privileges to install applications.
