Identity Finder software is designed to locate personally
identifiable information (PII)—in the form of Social Security Numbers (SSNs),
credit card numbers, and other sensitive information—that is stored on
computers. Individuals and departments at UVa can use Identity Finder to help
them find and, where possible, remove PII.
Identity Finder can also enable departments to keep an accurate
inventory of all SSN data stored on laptops, desktop computers, servers, and
other media (CDs, DVDs, tape backups, USB thumb drives, etc.), as part of the
requirements of the University SSN Policy
