To provide an extra level of security to laptops, we are activating disk encryption. This helps to prevent unauthorised access to the information on your hard disk.
The process begins when a new profile is automatically 'pushed' to your laptop via Airwatch. The process is automatic, painless and once complete you will not notice anything different when you use your laptop.
Once you have been notified that the new profile has been sent, please follow the instructions below to activate disk encryption. Most of the processes will occur in the background but you will be required to reboot your laptop.
Please ensure that your laptop is plugged in charging throughout this procedure
Step 1: When you see the following message, please enter your login password
Step 2: Once you have entered your password, click continue and the following message will appear.
Step 3: After 10 minutes you will be asked if you want to restart, if you do not, you have 15 minutes until it automatically restarts.
Step 4: Once you have restarted, please login as normal. The disk encryption process will complete in the background, this could take up to 90 minutes but you may continue to work as normal.
