International Travel & Data Hygiene

All Yale community members traveling with university devices are reminded to practice good data hygiene when leaving the U.S.  Using a clean loaner laptop is a best practice.  If that is not possible, remove all sensitive data, including research data, HIPAA- or other protected categories of data, and personal information from your laptop and other electronic devices before you leave the U.S.  Please review Yale’s export control guidance related to travel with electronic devices and ITS travel security guidelines for details and resources. 

Individuals departing Yale are reminded that research and other data generated within or on behalf of Yale belongs to Yale and must remain behind.
