Transcript:

To increase your awareness of the proper procedures for collecting, using, sharing and disposing of Sensitive PII, we’ve created two job aids. The first is called How to Safeguard PII, and is a summary of the Handbook for Safeguarding Sensitive PII at DHS. The second job aid is called Telework Best Practices, and outlines the proper protocol for handling Sensitive PII while teleworking.

Please download and print the job aids now. If you don’t have a printer, just open the PDFs in a new browser window/tab.

In this scenario, you will play the role of a FEMA employee who processes disaster assistance claims that contain Sensitive PII. Consult the two job aids throughout the scenario to answer the questions correctly.
