I do not have a university laptop issued to me. Can I use my personal computer in order to work from home?

Using a Stanford-owned device that has been configured to meet Stanford’s security requirements is always the best alternative for conducting Stanford work, both when at Stanford or at another location. If that option is not possible, the Information Security office strongly recommends that you leverage your department’s computing support staff to make sure your personal machine complies with Stanford requirements. If you access high-risk data, your device MUST be encrypted. For more information on encryption, check with your department’s computing support staff or visit Encrypt Your Devices.
