Many times, when credit card information, social security numbers, and other personal information is stolen, it comes from spreadsheets, emails, and other old documents that had been forgotten. Linda Pruss of Office of Campus Information Security and the Badger Incident Response Team (BadgIRT) demonstrate free tools such as Cornell Spider to help you find sensitive data and protect it once you find it. Checking your system for your own credit card and identity information will lower the risk of your identity being stolen.
