In class actions, expert witnesses often receive databases containing the personally identifying information (PII) of millions of people. PII is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact or locate an individual. Expert witnesses routinely receive highly sensitive PII for their review and analysis. Sensitive PII (SPII) is data that, if lost, compromised or disclosed without authorization, could result in substantial harm or embarrassment to the individual.
