    Help Desk Software - Is It Secure

    I am working on my SANS-GSEC certification. My paper topic is that Problem Tracking Software is great for help desks, but not well designed for use in the security area. Ex: Patient Health Information, SSNs, incident response, inappropriate web use, etc. Anyone have other items that would be considered sensitive that you would not put into problem tracking software?

    Those who speak of what they know... find out too late that prudent si-lence was wise.

    Phone Numbers, Last names, addresses....things like these could be used against people. For example they could be used to stalk a person.

I know you all...[/gloworange]
