Data breach attacks commonly target non production data since it is a softer target. Attackers realize that non production data stores often lack the same sense of security applied to production environments. Administration rights and user privileges are less closely controlled, and sensitive test data routinely walks out the door on consultant laptops. Yet the data within non production systems is often just as sensitive as production.
High profile data breaches routinely dominate the headlines and organizations are realizing the potentially devastating consequences they will face if they fail to protect the confidential data. In addition, compliance guidelines such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Protected Health Information (PHI) require that non production sensitive data be masked.
Data masking replaces personally identifiable information, such as a credit card or social security numbers, with contextually accurate, albeit fictionalized data. Just as important, data validation checks the integrity of data and ensures it is not vulnerable to loss, inaccuracy, technical or human errors.
