Penn State is committed to discovering, remediating, and securing personally identifiable information (PII) across its systems and networks. In 2010, the University licensed a software package called Identity Finder to assist users and IT staff in this process. Once installed, Identity Finder scans systems for 4 different identity, or PII, types (Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and driver’s license numbers) within system files, folders, and email clients. Once potential matches are identified, the software alerts the user to the potential PII matches found and assists in resolving the identified match.
