A global insurance organisation ran a GDPR driven Data Discovery and Governance project.  They wanted to gain visibility of their unstructured and stale data. One particular reason for this was to help them reduce the costs of unnecessary storage space, to then archive or delete the data correctly. The Data Discovery product deployed helped with the later challenge as well as remediating risks from group level access ensuring that only the employees needing to access certain data would have access to that group/data.

Global Insurance Organisation

A Government charity organisation wanted to classify their data and understand where that classified data was stored and who had access to it.

HANDD deployed Data Classification and Data Governance to work in tandem. By classifying their data the organisation was able to apply sensitivity whilst a Data Governance solution meant that using metadata tags they could see who was accessing sensitive content and where it was stored.
