What We Are Doing:
UNC has chosen Identity Finder as the tool we will use to scan and remediate sensitive data on our systems.
OIS will be installing Identity Finder on all School of Medicine machines that are a) Windows and b) joined to UNC’s AD domain.
Our primary goal is to get the software (Identity Finder) installed with as little interruption as possible to your work flow. If you have any problems regarding the installation (you may notice the Identity Finder Icon on your system (blue background, white dog as above)), please contact your local IT Support or http://help.med.unc.edu.
We appreciate your assistance with this University-wide undertaking.
What You Need To Do:
A formal letter announcing the initiative will arrive shortly via email, followed by an email with instructions on scanning and remediating the data on your local device.
What will Identity Finder Find?
School of Medicine IF scans will look to identify files that contain the following:
- Passport Numbers
- Credit Card Numbers
