I am looking to understand what applications/methods are being used by your organization to share Personally Identifiable Information (PII) with third parties? Secure email,  document management, secure ftp, etc?

 

Thank you,

We use Biscom Delivery Server to send confidential information both between different offices of the university as well as between the university and third parties.

It's one of those systems where you sign in and use a webmail-like interface to create a message to the recipient(s) and upload the files you want to send; it then sends an email to the recipient with a link that he or she can use to log in and download the files. It's got auditing and encryption and linkage to Active Directory and all those good things.

Message from garrett.lanzy@so.mnscu.edu

MnSCU is using the MOVEit DMZ solution from Ipswitch, which has the same functionality as Dave describes for Bizcom Delivery Server.  The solution is available to any employee within our system, and can be used to perform secure “ad-hoc” communication with third parties.  Since each of our (30+)  institutions maintain their own e-mail system, any solution which ties directly to e-mail would not be feasible/scalable for us.

 

We’re currently using it as a hosted (SaaS) solution, as that allowed for quicker deployment than we would have been able to do otherwise.  We are planning to bring it “in house” next year (which will provide some advantages due to automatically creating accounts for all employees, which is not cost-effective for us using the hosted solution).
