Safeguard McGill's devices, systems, and data

Picture this: you're sitting at a café, sipping on your latte, and scrolling through your laptop. Excited chatter causes you to look up, and you turn your head to watch the fluffiest dog prance down the street. A few seconds of distraction is all it takes for a thief to snatch your laptop and disappear into the crowd. But it's not just the monetary value of the device that you need to worry about.
