Identity Finder Protects Sensitive Personal Information

Identity Finder is software that can find personal information, such as Social Security numbers and credit card information, that is stored on a personal computer. Penn has licensed Identity Finder to help users find and protect this kind of data.

Our Identity Finder FAQ page has more information for faculty and staff interested in how Identity Finder works and why it is necessary.

We gave a presentation at Educause Security 2009 on our usage of Identity Finder in the School of Arts and Sciences. You can find the presentation slides linked at the bottom of this story.
