Find High Risk Data on My Computer
Even if you don’t usually access high-risk data, you may have downloaded it at some point or it may have been sent to you.
The only way to be sure your computer is free of high-risk data is to search for it and destroy it. At Cornell, we use Spirion to do this.
Spirion does three things really well:
- It searches for high-risk data on computers and file servers you use.
- It gives you a comprehensive list of potential concerns.
- It securely destroys anything you choose to shred.
Spirion won’t find everything. It only recognizes high-risk data elements. Other sensitive data must be addressed separately.
