Data Classes

A data class is a categorization that data owners apply to fields within data assets to indicate the category of data. Within the Privitar Data Security Platform​, data owners can apply a data class to identify the data's category and ensure that that kind of data is classified consistently throughout your organization. For example, data classes can classify birth dates, national identifiers, and postal codes.

As a data guardian, you create the data classes that data owners apply to fields when registering an asset.
