PRIVATE PERSONAL INFORMATION: PROTECT IT!
Best Practices for Protecting PPI
As a member of the University community, you may have access to private, personal information (PPI) for employees, students, patients, etc. It is essential that this PPI is protected.
What is PPI?
PPI is Private Personal Information. It is information which can be used to uniquely identify, contact or locate a single person, or may enable disclosure of personal information.
Why protect PPI?
In an environment like a university, where there are many access points to data, protecting data requires everyone's vigilance. Protect other individuals' PPI with the same care and caution with which you would like your information protected.
Who should I tell if I recognize that PPI has been compromised?
