Filevault – new encrypted storage with high security
The IT Division is offering a new file-storage service known as “Filevault” to enable LiU co-workers store personal data and sensitive data with a high level of security.
Filevault satisfies the requirements of GDPR and the Guidelines for Information Security at LiU. Its use has been approved by the LiU data protection officer. Filevault uses encrypted connections and logs all modifications made to files. The files are stored on an encrypted server located in a locked location protected by alarms.
Filevault has approximately the same appearance and works in approximately the same way as the previous file-storage service at LiU, “Fillagret”. The security functions in Filevault operate in the background, without the need for users to be aware of them. The security functions are under continuous development, to meet new and changed requirements and threats.
The cost is SEK 1,200 per terabyte (TB) and year. Purchase of storage space must be in units of a complete terabyte. Contact the Helpdesk at LiUIT to obtain help from an IT technician if you want to take out a subscription for your group or division.
