Between 2017 and 2018, amount of compromised Personally Identifiable Information jumped 126 percent as more than 446 million records were expose. While no Security technology can prevent every breach, organizations can reduce risk by educating employees about PII and creating a culture in which IT Security and Data Protection share responsibilities among all users. Pii is data that can be used to identify individual, either on its own or when combined with other data. For example, person's name, home or email address, phone number, date of birth, Social Security number, passport number, drivers license number, login credentials, and biometric data such as fingerprints or retina scans can be used to identify someone. Data such as first or last name, location, race, gender, age range, and medical or financial information can be combined with other data to zero in on persons identity. Keep in mind that different types of information might be considered PII in different contexts. In healthcare, HIPAA regulations are intended to safeguard protected health information, which includes patient medical records. However, compliance with HIPAA does necessarily ensure compliance with Payment Card Industry Security standards that protect payment cardholder data. The General Data Protection Regulation, which was developed to protect PII of European Union citizens, has raised the bar in terms of strict requirements and financial consequences for noncompliance. According to GDPR, IP addresses, Social media posts, digital images, location data, and other information fall under the umbrella of PII. Unlike the EU, US does not have a single standard or regulation for protecting all types of PII. In addition to industry-specific regulations, rules vary from State to State. Pii is often exposed because individual users store data on their devices or in unsanctioned cloud platforms. June data breach at Oregon State University was traced to employees hacking an email account, which contained PII of 636 students and their families. Centralize control of PII for security and compliance will reduce the risk of exposure, but organizations must make sure proper protections are in place. For example, Maryland State Department of Education recently found that PII of 1. 4 million students and 233 310 teachers were stored in plain text in databases and applications. Fifteen servers were using programs that hadnt been updated since 2015 and some computers were running software from 2008. A recent survey of healthcare organizations by Netwrix found that no respondents-zero percent-had classified all of their data that was stored in cloud. Thirty percent were not encrypting their cloud data, and 26 percent had experienced Security Incidents involving cloud data in the past year. Technology must be part of the equation, but user training is critical to protecting PII and avoiding penalties and potential lawsuits that stem from noncompliance. Let US help you develop a security program that educates users about what PII is, best practices for protecting PII, and consequences of data breach.

Measuring Success

Personally identifiable Information is data which can be used to identify, locate, or contact individuals and includes information like name, date of birth, place of residence, credit card information, phone number, race, gender, criminal record, age, and medical records. Every organization stores and uses PII, be IT information on their employees or customers. Even schools and universities will store PII of their students, while hospitals will store patient data. Pii Your company's stores are highly attractive to would-be attackers who can sell PII on the black market at a handsome price. The Pii can be used for any number of criminal activities, including identity theft, fraud, and social engineering attacks. It goes without saying that it is absolutely vital that individuals and companies protect their PII. Failure to secure PII leaves your company open to highly targeted social engineering attacks, heavy regulatory fines, and loss of customer trust and loyalty.
