Auburn University is committed to avoiding unintentional disclosure of protected information such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and Protected Health Information (PHI) as has recently happened at Auburn and many of our peer institutions. While Auburn has taken a number of steps to prevent this kind of disclosure, offices are still contacted from time to time with potential breaches, and often no one even expected the data was being stored on the system involved!
Auburn has chosen Spirion to enable University employees to comply with the University mandates of protecting Prohibited and Restricted data from unwanted disclosure. The goal of deploying Spirion is for Auburn to be the first to find this risky data and to be sure it is properly protected so Auburn can avoid any negative reputational consequences because of a breach of protected data.
Spirion scans your files for personally identifiable information (PII) such as social security numbers and credit card numbers, and provides you or your IT support team with a report that allows you to delete PII that is unneeded.
If you have any questions regarding Spirion, please contact your IT Provider or :
