what is pii
What is PII?

PII (Personally Identifiable Information) is any information about an individual that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity or can be linked to an individual.


  • Name: full name, mother’s maiden name, alias
  • Personal ID number: SS number, Passport, driver’s license or credit card numbers
  • Medical, educational, financial and employment information
personally identifiable information pii
Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

The escalation of security breaches involving personally identifiable information (PII) has contributed to the loss of millions of records over the past several years.

Individual HarmOrganizational Harm

  • Identity theft - Loss of public trust
  • Embarrassment - Legal liability
  • Blackmail - Remediation cost ($$$)
risk based approach to guarding the security of pii
Risk-Based Approach to Guarding the Security of PII

If we guard our toothbrushes and diamonds with equal zeal, we will lose fewer toothbrushes and more diamonds.


fmr US National Security Advisor

  • Identify all PII residing in the data environment
  • Minimize the use, collection, and retention of PII
  • Categorize PII by confidentiality impact level
  • Apply appropriate safeguards based on confidentiality level
  • Develop an incident response plan to handle PII breaches
  • Exercise a coordinated effort in managing PII issues
identify all pii residing in y our e nvironment
Identify ALL PII Residing in Your Environment
  • An organization cannot properly protect PII it does not know about!
  • Be sure to consider your environment:
    • Databases
    • Shared network drives
    • Backup tapes
    • Contractor sites
minimize pii used collected and stored
Minimize PII Used, Collected and Stored
  • The likelihood of harm caused by a breach involving PII is greatly reduced if an organization minimizes the amount of PII it uses, collects and stores.
  • Best Practices:
    • Review current holdings of PII and ensure they are accurate, relevant, timely and complete
    • Reduce PII holdings to the minimum necessary for proper performance of business functions
    • Develop a schedule for periodic review of PII holdings
    • Establish a plan to eliminate the unnecessary collection and use of SSNs
categorize pii by confidentiality impact level
Categorize PII by Confidentiality Impact Level
  • All PII is not created equal.
  • PII should be evaluated to determine its PII confidentiality impact level – low, moderate, or high
    • The impact level indicates the potential harm that could result to the individuals and/or the organization if the PII were inappropriately accessed, used, or disclosed.
develop an incident response plan for pii breaches
Develop an Incident Response Plan for PII Breaches
  • Breaches involving PII are hazardous to both individuals and organizations
  • Harm to individuals and organizations can be contained and minimized through the development of an effective IRP for breaches involving PII, including:
    • Determining when and how individuals should be notified
    • How a breach should be reported
    • Whether to provide remedial services, like credit monitoring, to affected individuals
encourage a concerted effort regarding pii issues
Encourage a Concerted Effort Regarding PII Issues
  • Protecting the confidentiality of PII requires knowledge of information systems, information security, privacy as well as legal requirements.
  • Organizations should encourage close coordination among their chief privacy officers, chief information officers, chief information security officers and legal counsel when making decisions related to PII policies
