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 automatically run Spirion on all college owned computers on a regular 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 has suggestions on handling Spirion scan results. More information, including how to handle scan results, can be found on CIT’s Spirion website:
