Data classification is vital as it is useful in supporting controls for data security and governance such as data loss prevention (DLP),

data access governance and enterprise digital rights management (EDRM). It also helps organizations to understand data in the context of its usage and risk levels. However, Gartner observes that unstructured data is becoming increasingly difficult to manage. As a result, the individuals or systems that are tasked with processing information rarely classify, label or enforce controls on every piece of data. This inconsistency makes classification unreliable as a driver of and means of support for data security and compliance efforts. Organizations need a practical data classification approach that provides a foundation for the business to understand and address the mitigating measures necessary.
