To ensure compliance with legal requirements governing Social Security Numbers (SSNs) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII), ECU established the Identity Theft Protection Committee (ITPC) to oversee the collection, segregation, disclosure and security of SSNs and PII and the development of related policies/regulations.
The ITPC is also responsible for approving the collection and use of SSNs and PII.
Allow at least 30 days for the entire process.
ECU's SSN/PII policy was initially approved in 2007 and updated to a Regulation on July 20, 2012. This regulation states that SSN and PII information may only be collected, used and/or disclosed by ECU and its employees and agents as permitted by applicable law and university policy and only in furtherance of legitimate university business.
