Classifications

You can manually assign classifications to assets in catalogs on the Overview tab of a data asset.

By default, the following classifications are identified:

  • Sensitive personal information (SPI)
    Sensitive personal data is defined as personal data consisting of information relating to an individual with regard to racial or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious beliefs or other beliefs of a similar nature; trade union membership; physical or mental health or condition; sexual life; or any criminal or alleged criminal history of a person.

  • Personally identifiable information (PII)
    Personally identifiable information (PII) is defined as any data that could potentially identify a specific individual. Any information that can be used to distinguish one person from another can be considered PII.

  • Confidential
    Confidential data is data that if compromised in some form, is likely to result in significant and/or long-term harm to the institution and/or individuals whose data it is.

These default classifications can be renamed by associating them with a business term of your choice.
