Data Classification for Cloud Security

For security teams with modern cloud infrastructures to locate and secure sensitive, toxic, and exposed data within hundreds or thousands of accounts, billions of objects, and petabytes of data, existing tools don’t work. Whether starting or continuing down a path toward compliance, establishing baseline governance, or improving incident response prioritization, the right data classification capability is essential for knowing your data, where it resides, and how it is protected.

In this ebook, we explain:

  • How data classification works using several methods, including regular expressions and machine learning
  • Implementing data classification for compliance, governance, and precision alert prioritization
  • Data classification testing, benchmarking, and efficacy
  • Operationalizing data classification for cloud data security
