Project SIR: How to identify sensitive data on your computer

At UNC we all have a responsibility to protect sensitive information that we have created or has been entrusted to us. Identity Finder is a tool that is available to scan and remediate sensitive data on your computer. Read more about Identity Finder and how to move sensitive data to a secure location.

UNC and the School of Medicine have partnered on an initiative designed to help ensure we are protecting the sensitive information that we have either created or has been entrusted to us.
