Data classification is essential in the enterprise not only to comply with and implement legal regulations, but also to know where the data is.

What is data classification?

A data classification is a sorting of data into previously defined classes. Thus, data is divided into classes and can be assigned rules per class. The goal is to get a grip on the vast amount of structured and unstructured data.

Data classification is a well-known topic in many companies. Unfortunately, corresponding data classes only exist on paper, but are not used productively. Furthermore, it is not easy to implement these data classes technically and to get the employees to classify the data.
