Seven Steps for Migrating Sensitive Data to the Cloud: A Guide for Data Teams

Cloud migration doesn’t happen overnight, nor does it happen in a vacuum — it requires a careful planning process to ensure all systems work as they should. That includes your system for protecting sensitive data. 

If not done right, data governance and security in the cloud migration process could put organizations at risk for exposing confidential personal and corporate information. But cloud migrations don’t have to be a challenge for data engineers and architects when sensitive data security is built into their migration plan.

This TDWI checklist, sponsored by Immuta, covers specific ways data teams can migrate sensitive data to the cloud, including:

  • Developing a taxonomy for sensitive data and implementing automated processes to classify new and existing data
  • Defining permitted uses and applying fine grained access controls accordingly
  • Creating a data governance strategy that works with your cloud platform(s)
  • Scaling your data protection strategy and managing compliance
