Dell Data Protection Encryption (DDPE) Software

As part of our ongoing data security efforts, data encryption using Dell Data Protection Encryption (DDPE) software is available to all current faculty and staff. DDPE should be installed on all BC-owned computers that store confidential data. For most laptops, the software can be automatically installed without any action on your part.

Tip: You should always perform a successful backup of your computer before you start the encryption process.
