Data Classification is a mechanism for organising data. There are multiple classification schemes out there.


  • Security of classification information.


Benefits of Data Classification are:

  • Clarity. Data classification helps teams understand what information exists within the organization, where data is stored, and how to access it. Classification is an essential step when developing the rules, processes, and procedures you will use to protect sensitive information.
  • Compliance. Promote a culture of compliance at your organization with a clear strategy for data governance. Categorizing your data according to sensitivity will help you protect your confidential and classified information. It will also help your organization meet regulatory requirements, avoid penalties, and guard against mistakes that could harm your reputation.
  • Efficiency: Classification assists in improving organisational efficiency.
