International Travel -- Faculty and Staff Technology Considerations
Faculty and staff traveling to some countries, and who need a laptop, should be prepared to reimage their laptops or take a loaner.
Use of technology while traveling to high-risk countries requires preparation and consideration. Computers that travel to these countries should be reimaged upon return. Choosing to employ one of these two tactics can help protect university and personal data:
- Take a loaner and load only the files you need; do not store any files with moderate or high-risk data
- Reload your computer before leaving and reload only those files that will be needed; reload upon return
After returning, change your password.
