PII and Identity Finder

What is PII? How can I be sure I'm protected?

Because of the growing number of security threats today, Penn State requires that each of its units and campuses identify, remove, and/or protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on all Penn State desktops, laptops, and servers. PII includes sensitive information such as Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, driver's license numbers and bank account numbers.

To aid in this effort, Penn State has obtained a university-wide license for the Identity Finder/Spirion software. It's important that you read and follow these instructions to properly remediate your computer.
