Recently, ITSS implemented the DLP service in order to protect Personally Identifying Information (PII). This service was implemented to make UNT System complaint with federal and state laws regarding the distribution and storage of PII, like bank account numbers, social security numbers, and more.  In the future, we hope to extend the DLP service to more departments in the UNT System.
