Sensitive Data Inventory

This is a key piece of information in the datamasking implementation project, which will be involved in every stage of the project and constantly updated.

The purpose

We need this document, so we know what information the company is interested in protecting.

Some of it might be due to legal requirements, but there also might be reasons for masking other information, regardless of its legal condition. Such as privacy for non-allowed personnel.

This document also gathers information about the appropriate datamasking algorithms. Some of them may be well-known in advance and provided by icaria Mirage out-of-the-box capabilities. But some others are company or application specific, and will be created in the following cycles.

Who is invited to participate?

Generally speaking, at least the following opinions are required:

  • Information security responsible
  • Application functional leader
  • Software testing leader

The tools

We have provided the client team with a Sensitive Data Inventory template in Word format.

Current version of icaria Mirage also supports this functionality.
