Institutional Data Security
The UI College of Pharmacy is committed to protecting sensitive institutional data and personal information.
We utilize a University-licensed software tool called Identity Finder to detect Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, and other Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Identity Finder is installed on all computers in the College, and is used to scan files on your computer, network drive(s), and email, and identify and protect or remove potentially sensitive data, including SSNs and credit card numbers. Identity Finder scans may be run while you continue to do other work; it is not necessary to close other open software.
For your convenience, we have created a complete set of instructions for Pharmacy faculty and staff on scanning Windows and Mac OS computers.
Questions about data security methods should be directed to the Pharmacy IT Help Desk at Pharmacy-HelpDesk@uiowa.edu or by calling (319) 335-8649.
