For years, Zunesis has been using a common methodology and approach to help organizations understand what data they have today and what their data requirements look like in the future. This consistent methodology is offered in a service called a Data Classification Assessment. This Assessment defines what data exists, where it exists, how it is being used and by what applications, the value of the data to the organization, and how the data is (or should be) managed.
We employ automated, agentless information collection tools that quickly provide a wealth of data for analysis. These automated tools, combined with sit-down interviews with key stakeholders, provide a useful understanding of the current state as well as the expectations of the user community from various vantage points.
Zunesis has performed Data Classification Assessments for some of the largest companies in the world, medium-sized commercial firms, and both large and small public sector organizations. Every organization can benefit from this very valuable service.
