The worlds of data privacy and security are converging. Efficiently implementing controls on sensitive data requires an end-to-end controlled data environment. The foundation of such an environment? Data classification.

Classifying data for fine-grained access control may seem straightforward, but in today’s complex ecosystems it can prove to be quite challenging. This white paper helps remove the guesswork. In it, you’ll learn:

  • The fundamentals of data classification and why it’s more important now than ever before
  • How to identify data classes and class properties, map tags, and build policy tables
  • 10 recommendations for streamlining the data classification process and satisfying security and privacy requirements
