Secure Your Personal Information

Over the past several weeks UIT has started the process of deploying a new software to UND-owned computers to help users properly dispose of important, private data such as Social Security and credit card numbers. Sensitive Data Manager, Spirion, is a data loss prevention software that helps users locate sensitive data that may not be easy to find.  Our goal is to reduce the risk of data compromises by reducing the amount of confidential information stored on computers. UIT will not run scans, unless requested. Individual users will run scans on their own devices. Once a scan is run and if sensitive information is found, users will be prompted to secure or dispose of sensitive data on their systems.

If you have questions, please contact the IT security team at:
