Protection of Highly Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (HSPII) data is essential to every organization and requires a well-developed set of rules and processes to be enforced by the Information Technology (IT) organization. These rules and processes must be incorporated into a formal HSPII protection program that is understood by all IT workers in the organization. The purpose of this study was to examine the IT employee understanding of HSPII programs. The assumption is made that the security of the vast amount of HSPII data stored on organizational systems is directly related to the understanding level of the HSPII programs implemented . There were significant correlations between each of the six demographic variables examined in this study as they related to understanding. The results of this study provide a realistic view of the IT professional's understanding of their responsibility and ability in protecting HSPII data.
