Data Security Glossary

No matter what your role is within an organization, this data security glossary is intended for anyone from the security leader to the security practitioner.

Data access governance

Data access governance (DAG) solutions manage user, application, and machine data access privileges. They employ the principle of least privilege to ensure only the right identities have access to the organization’s sensitive data, enabling innovation and growth while maintaining a strong security posture. DAG tools also continuously monitor who and what is accessing data, highlighting unauthorized access or suspicious behavior.
