Find_SSNs is not a silver bullet against identity theft. It helps individuals and organizations find sensitive numbers in files on computers. It does not secure the files it discovers. It may produce false positives and false negatives. It may miss some files altogether. Use it as part of a larger plan to identify and protect sensitive data stored on computers. Do not rely solely on it. To be 100% certain that sensitive data does not exist in files, humans should manually examine the files. Preventing sensitive data disclosures is a process. Organizations should have ongoing, recurring efforts in place to locate and secure sensitive data before a break-in occurs. You should also note that Find_SSNs is a tool. Like any tool, it can be used for good or bad purposes. For example, it can just as easily be used by 'bad guys' to find your sensitive data before you do.
