Data classification: the foundation of data protection compliance requirements.


Data is the new oil, or so the saying goes. Yet as soon as organizations create data, it becomes a Rubiks cube style problem. Organizations must store data, protect it, track it, share it, dispose of it, and sometimes pay for issues caused when it falls into the wrong hands.

Further complicating data management are a growing list of compliance requirements, legislation, and guidelines aimed at organizations by governments, and regulatory bodies to ensure accountability for data protection.

How data classification solutions help meet compliance requirements.

How data classification solutions help meet compliance requirements.

Data classification helps organizations meet data protection compliance requirements by adding visible markings and metadata markings to a file’s properties. The combination means human users and security applications, platforms, and control systems instantly know how to handle the file appropriately.

The benefits for your organization include reduced risks of data loss or mismanagement, full compliance, better information control, and more secure collaboration.
