Reporting old accounts

Dormant accounts may still hold or provide access to sensitive data. Security teams should be notified when accounts are no longer needed.

Why is it important?

Knowing what personal information is online is important. If personal data is held in unused accounts, it becomes harder to track.

Should a data breach occur, personal data may be unnecessarily exposed.
