It is DON Policy to reduce or eliminate the use of Social Security numbers (SSN) in DON business processes wherever possible. The SSN is one of the personal identifiers most often used in commission of identity theft. The DON has made great strides in reducing SSN use, but more remains to be done. This guidance updates the DON plan begun in 2009 to reduce the collection, use, display, and maintenance of SSNs in the DON's official forms, IT systems, applications, shared drives, web portals and other collections associated with DON business processes.
