Background

Data has transformative potential in the predictive and AI era to propel business outcomes. Organizations need to create data agility but at the same time manage risk and ensure the right usage and compliance with regulations. To achieve this, the first step is to be able to discover and identify sensitive data across the data estate.

 

The current processes for data discovery and classification are not adequate for the modern data landscape. They are fragmented by different disciplines or workloads, resulting in redundant work, poor visibility, and inconsistent data categorization across the data estate. Moreover, they often rely on manual interventions, which are time-consuming and error-prone, especially when dealing with diverse data sources on a large scale.

 

Hence, a unified and automated solution that can discover, classify, and label sensitive data across different data sources and domains is required.

 

How can Labeling in Microsoft Purview data map help address these challenges?

Microsoft Purview is a comprehensive set of solutions that can help your organization secure, govern and manage your data, wherever it lives. It enables organizations to have a comprehensive and consistent view of their data assets and the sensitivity levels of their data, as well as to enforce data policies and comply with regulations.

 

Labeling with Purview Data Map enables organizations to identify sensitive data easily and consistently across the data estate, regardless of where it resides or how it is structured. It also reduces the manual effort and human error involved in labeling the data by using predefined rules and policies that match your business and compliance needs.

How does it work?

To Label your data in Purview Data Map, you need to register your data sources in Purview and scan them to discover and catalog your data assets. Then, you need to create Sensitivity Labels and define the rules and policies for applying the labels to your data assets. Once you scan the data source in the Data Map, Purview will automatically label your data assets.
