Mobile Device Center

All individuals have a personal responsibility to safeguard the integrity and confidentiality of the University's systems, data and physical facilities. Security of mobile devices and the data they hold is necessary both to honor the University's obligations to providers of data (students, staff and faculty) and to protect the University's systems and data from accidental or deliberate damage, loss or corruption. Users of mobile devices are responsible for ensuring that data and information to which they have authorized access is used only for the purpose provided and that the confidentiality, integrity and security of the data is maintained.

It is strongly recommended that you do not use your mobile device to store, process or transmit sensitive information unless you are confident that the security controls on the device are sufficient to prevent data loss or theft. All mobile devices should be configured so that entry of a password is required after a certain period of inactivity. Additional protective measures, such as erasing your data after a predetermined number of failed passcode attempts, are also recommended.

The Mobile Device Center provides general guidelines and summary information about selecting, acquiring, configuring and using mobile devices at The University of Scranton but is not intended to be all-inclusive.
