A lot of discussion has been brought regarding the protection of personal information such as SSN, grades, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers etc. Some, if not all of this data is called Personally Identifiable Information (PII) my question is: what are you, as a web developer in your college, doing to ensure that such data is protected and or controlled? I am sure many of you have been asked to develop applications that ask for some of this data... what do you do to protect it?
Does your college have someone in charge of this?
Does your college run scans to find such data in its network?
thanks for you your feedback and ideas!
