Welcome to the Indiana University Global Identity Finder Page

The Identity Finder Service represents one service component of the security solutions offered by UITS Leveraged Services. The Identity Finder service mission is to provide a platform for IT Professionals to manage data security and compliance requirements around the discovery of sensitive data and more adeptly defend against sensitive data exposures. Identity Finder is a tool that is offered free of charge to organizational units that can search computer systems and find, delete, and secure sensitive data thus reducing the overall risk of data breaches.

The Identity Finder Management Console offers several benefits to departments such as:
  • Evidence that scans have been completed
  • Management awareness of highly sensitive data
  • Easier remediation
  • Automated scanning and remediation reports
  • Centralized departmental management of scans
  • Reduced false positives

The Identity Finder Management Console can also enable departments to keep an accurate inventory of all SSN data stored on laptops, desktop computers, servers, and other media (CDs, DVDs, tape backups, USB thumb drives, etc.), as part of the requirements of the University SSN Policy.

If you know you handle highly sensitive data regularly, Identity Finder sensitive data scans should be performed and all unapproved storage remediated regularly. If you don't handle sensitive data regularly it is recommended that data scans be performed to remove possible incidental data exposure.
