Personally Identifiable Information
PII is the acronym for Personally Identifiable Information.
Any information related to an identifiable person. Companies may use this data to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Storage of PII often adds security, legal, or compliance requirements within an organization as it’s a point of concern for data leaks as well as a target for hackers.
