How can University personnel safeguard research while traveling abroad?

The research that occurs at the University of Arizona is innovative and often of high value and needs protecting even if it is not subject to export control restrictions. Take steps to protect your information, access to university systems, and report to your department administration any concerns or peculiarities that emerge. Steps to secure your research include:
  • limiting what you take abroad;
  • keeping information in your possession or locked in a secure location;
  • using a “clean” laptop – with minimal information;
  • using the university VPN if you need to access data;
  • encrypting your device; and
  • screening collaborators in advance.
