Reporting a Lost or Stolen Device

Reporting a Lost or Stolen Device

As computing devices become increasingly numerous and increasingly portable, they become much easier to lose — or to have stolen. Recently, phones and computers have gone missing even from within SoM offices and labs. Any employee who’s lost a device that is being used for Stanford business, whether personally-owned or University-owned, is responsible for following all school procedures related to the possible disclosure of information. This includes reporting the situation immediately to the Stanford University Privacy Office.

Now on the Data Security Program’s website is a streamlined checklist for reporting a missing phone, laptop, or other computing device. Click here for details.
