Spirion

All college owned computers currently have “Spirion” software installed in order to assist faculty and staff in identifying confidential, restricted, or personally identifiable, information that might be stored on them.  Beginning in November 2016, CALS OIT will take steps to automatically run Spirion on all college owned computers on a quarterly basis.

If during Spirion scanning the software locates data that it identifies as potentially confidential, restricted, or personally identifiable, it is up to each employee to act upon the Spirion results and decide how to handle the data.

The Cornell “Guide to Data Discovery” can be found here and suggestions on handling Spirion scan results can be found on CIT’s Spirion (formerly Identity Finder) website:
