The University Information Security Office (UISO) uses Identity Finder, a sensitive data managing solution, to scan for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) every six months. Each department nominates an individual to serve as a Data Steward. The Data Steward serves as the departmental contact for communication from the UISO and is responsible for managing the computers in their respective departments. Training is required for new Data Stewards and when there are major changes to the program.
In 2013, the UISO upgraded the Identity Finder application to allow scan scheduling. This reduces the amount of work required by each Data Steward and allows centralized management for the UISO. If a computer has the University standard image, Identity Finder is already installed and configured. However, if the computer was not imaged by ITS, the Identity Finder application may not be installed on the machine. The links below allow you to download and install the Identity Finder application if necessary.
