Encryption Key Escrow

Northwestern provides encryption key escrow for both Mac and PC platforms. This ensures that encryption keys are stored in a central location so that a hard drive can be decrypted in the event that a local user forgets his or her password or if a department needs to restore data from a machine that they manage.

Northwestern IT offers two options for escrowing full disk encryption keys: Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring for Windows computers, and JAMF for Mac FileVault.
