Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is any information about an individual maintained by an agency, including (1) any information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual‘s identity, such as name, social security number, date and place of birth, mother‘s maiden name, or biometric records; and (2) any other information that is linked or linkable to an individual, such as medical, educational, financial, and employment information (including address).
Governance of PII and its use is administered by the University’s Information Security Governance Subcommittee (ISGC). The University has established this subcommittee to oversee security and data privacy issues, including ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, protection, and availability of the University’s information assets. It is important that we remain vigilant about protecting the University’s information, and appreciate your efforts and compliance with this matter.
If there is a business need that requires PII information to be used outside of the University enterprise systems, or if you have concerns about the protection or use of PII, please contact the Office of Information Technology at 718-990-5000 (x5000).
