How to Obtain Spirion

Spirion is currently licensed and available for any campus-provided computer. If you don't have Spirion installed, contact your Technical Support team to have it installed.

Scanning Your Computer for Sensitive Data

Addressing Discovered PII or Sensitive Data

  • Using the ignore feature
  • Shredding sensitive data
  • Scrubbing or redacting sensitive data
  • Quarantine Option - not available.
  • Secure Option - not available.  The Secure feature will encrypt the file and may only be accessed with the password set at the time of encryption. Though this feature may seem advantageous, it has its drawbacks. For example, if a user were to forget the password to the file, the data will not be recoverable.
  • Recycle Option - not available.

How to Manage Your Scanning Profile Password

The Spirion client application provides the ability to save settings, configuration information, and sensitive data across sessions through the use of a profile password

Note: It is not possible to recover a lost password; however, it is possible to delete a profile and create a new one.

When the profile password is created, that password is used to encrypt the profile. The profile password is not stored anywhere and therefore if it is lost or forgotten, then all of the information in the profile will be lost.

If you have questions about Spirion, please contact the Information Security Office via email at helpdesk@minotstateu.edu .
