Protecting PII

PII is information which can be used to distinguish or trace an individual's identity. This information can, for example, be a name, social security number, or biometric record. The information can be used in isolation to identify a person, or can be combined with other information which is linked or linkable to a specific individual, for example date or place of birth or mother’s maiden name. An attribute not identifying someone alone, but in combination with others is referred to as a quasi-identifier or a pseudo-identifier. Because of the versatility and power of modern re-identification algorithms, the absence of explicit PII does not mean that the remaining data cannot be used to identify individuals.
