Spirion data scan results

Ignoring False Positive Results

The Ignore option should be utilized when a false positive result is found. A false positive is when Spirion marks a file as personally identifiable information when it actually is not. An example is when Spirion picks up a campus 9 digit employee ID as a social security number. The Ignore option allows users to tell Spirion to ignore this piece of data from now on.....

Redacting Sensitive Data

This option should be used when the file found is still needed but the personally identifiable information part of the file is not.

  • If you wish to keep the found item but remove the personal information only, you should utilize the Scrub feature. Scrub should be selected when you no longer need the personal information but want to keep the original item. This feature is also known as Redact.
  • Scrub is only available for specific file types searched via the Files search and is not available for email or other Search Locations.
  • You may only scrub Office 2007 and higher files (that is, *.docx, *.xlsx, *.pptx) and text files (*.txt, *.log, *.ini).
