Sensitive Data Classification

Improve the Accuracy and Efficiency of Your Data Classification Initiatives

In data governance and privacy compliance, data classification tools help organizations categorize their data based upon custom or predefined policies, which can be used to ensure the security of their personal and sensitive data.

Growing public concern for data privacy has resulted in governments around the world taking a closer look at how organizations obtain, and process, sensitive personal data. This has resulted in the creation of new stringent data privacy laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Dataguise delivers powerful data classification software, providing organizations with deeper insights into their data governance and privacy compliance programs, such as:

  • What type of sensitive personal data is collected?
  • Where is sensitive personal data stored?
  • Who has access to sensitive personal data?
  • How secure is sensitive personal data & does it adhere to compliance regulations?

Dataguise includes predefined, out-the-box policies that enable organizations to begin classifying data quickly with just a few clicks. These policies cover common data types and highly recognized regulations, including:
