Identity Finder

Identity Finder is a software tool used by HSU to discover, classify, and remediate the inappropriate storage of Level I protected data on campus computer systems. Identity Finder scans are specifically intended to uncover where Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and driver's license numbers, as well as passwords, may be stored and ensure that such storage is only for legitimate business purposes. 

Staff and faculty are required to run Identity Finder on their HSU computers annually and securely delete any PII on their system or in their shared drive that does not serve a current campus business need. If you have a business need to store Level 1 protected data on your HSU computer, your appropropriate administrator must work with the Information Security office to register and appropriately protect your that computer.
