Data classification is the process of sorting and labeling data for purposes of data privacy and data management. The data classification process provides intelligence on data location, sensitivity, geography, or other characteristics. With this intelligence, organizations can better manage and secure data to meet privacy, governance, business, and security objectives.
Data can be classified across multiple variables. For example, a piece of data could be classified as company confidential, high business value and medium-term retention; the data classifications providing value to the organization’s utilization, management, and governance of that data.
