Loaner CWRU ChromeBooks Support Data Privacy when Travelling

When it comes to travelling internationally with computer devices containing yet-unpublished research data or other private information, the University Compliance Office and CWRU Information Security Office urge you to “travel clean.” Consider leaving at home devices containing research data or other sensitive information which may be vulnerable to loss, theft, or export-licensing-related considerations.

The University Compliance Office and CWRU Information Security Office have partnered to make clean ChromeBooks (laptops containing no hard drive) available for loan to individuals travelling abroad on CWRU business. The ChromeBooks are integrated with CWRU’s Google Apps services, and are available for loan from Kelvin Smith Library on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit the Circulation Desk to check one out.

If you are unsure about any data or materials you plan to bring as you travel abroad, call Lisa Palazzo, Director of Export Control and Privacy Management, 368-5791, or Boyd Kumher, University Chief Compliance, Export Control & Privacy Officer, 368-0833, or email exportcontrol@case.edu.

If you have questions regarding information security, call Tom Siu, Chief Information Security Officer, 368.6959, or email ciso@case.edu.
