Using TDM for Security and Compliance in Application Testing Environments

Using TDM for Security and Compliance in Application Testing Environments

Testing teams need to be compliant and maintain strict controls on the data used in testing environments.
You must identify sensitive information in huge volumes of production data and then ensure that you do not expose the information in the test data. This is a challenge and a compliance and security risk.
You can perform the following tasks to help with security and compliance in a test environment:
  • To analyze the data and identify sensitive information in the data, run profiles in TDM. You can compare the data against multiple compliance regulation standards to ensure that the data meets standard compliance regulations. For example, run a profile on the data to identify columns that contain sensitive data according to PII, PCI, or PHI compliance regulations.
  • To remove sensitive data that you identify, run a data masking operation in TDM. You can use standard masking formats such as credit card numbers or Social Security numbers to mask data or create customized formats to mask data.
