Secure Computing 

Secure computing standards identify the minimum requirements for all University-owned computers and servers. CU Boulder has adopted these standards to increase the integrity and security of University data and the shared information technology environment. When you procure a new Dell or Apple computer, you don't have to worry about whether you're meeting secure computing standards - all models bought through marketplace and FCPP meet CU Boulder's Secure Computing standard. Learn more about Secure Computing for CU Boulder.
