Key advice to help your data classification work effectively
With most of today's data being managed in digital formats, security is obviously of paramount importance. Part of creating an effective organisational security posture involves data classification. Data classification is the process of organising data into specific categories, so it can be used and managed more efficiently.
Data classification delivers two crucial benefits to organisations. First, data classification proactively protects sensitive information where it is held, and when it is shared across - or outside - an organisation.

Robust data classification is a core component of healthy risk management, compliance and data security.
