Course Description


One of the unintended consequences of the information age is the availability of personal Identifiable information (PII). The combination of name, date of birth, and identification number are the “keys to the kingdom” for the purposes of establishing false identity and fraud. Lost laptops, network break-ins, and phishing expeditions have led governmental entities to establish a patchwork quilt of laws requiring custodians of personal information to provide safeguards and assurance that PII is secure.


In this course, we will discuss:

  • PII scope and definitions.
  • State and federal PII requirements.
  • An action plan for compliance.
