Spirion (formerly Identity Finder) is a scanning tool that searches for confidential information such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and passwords that may be stored on your computer, file shares, or removable drives. Spirion helps prevent data security breaches and identity theft by locating sensitive personal information and providing options for removing or protecting it. Clark has licensed Spirion to help faculty and staff protect this kind of data.
If your computer is managed by ITS, the Spirion has been installed automatically. You can find it in your installed programs list or you may have a desktop icon that looks like this:
If you can’t find Spirion or need assistance finding it, please contact the ITS Help Desk.
