Sensitive Data Everywhere: Find It, Classify It, Manage It, and Protect It

New tools offer the opportunity to reduce the compliance and cybersecurity risk associated with unstructured data.

Joseph Krull
Senior Analyst

Boston, November 24, 2020 Data rapidly and naturally proliferates within an organization as a normal function of business operations as employees and business partners constantly create files and records that can contain highly sensitive information. It’s no longer effective to only apply controls to traditional databases and applications, as most data created now is unstructured. Until recently, very little effort was devoted to managing unstructured data and even less to protecting unstructured data from unauthorized use or theft. But privacy mandates have spurred accelerated development of new tools and technologies to discover and manage sensitive data.

This Impact Brief provides organizations with recommendations for unstructured data security and for adding sensitive data discovery, data classification, data management, and data protection to the organization’s overall cybersecurity strategy.
