Brandeis ITS Security utilizes Spirion (formerly known as Identity Finder) to detect instances of personally identifiable information (PII), such as credit card numbers and Social Security numbers, on university-owned computers.

Importance of Spirion

In the event a computer containing PII is lost or stolen, Brandeis would be subject to laws governing data breaches. To limit financial and reputational risk, Brandeis ITS employs technologies to limit the use of PII on computers. Spirion is one of several protections we have in place in case of such an event.
