  • 1.  Adding Data Classification (Private, Confidential, PII) into Data Model

    Posted 29 days ago

    I'm looking at adding in data classifications and a PII identifier directly into the Reltio Datamodel so I've got an easier way to export a Data Dictionary with all the info required for compliance. 

    Since there's currently only a description field for each entity attribute, I was going to just append a string one to the end of each description for DataClassification=Private,PII=True.

    Anyone done something similar or have a better idea? 

    My goal is to be able to pull a Data Dictionary on demand with all the info and not maintain it separately

    We have a similar request from our compliance and Data Governance teams. 

    In our case,  we ave multiple entities with some fields that may contain PII, PHI, PCI, or internally sensitive data. For example,

    • SSN on an Individual entity is always Private PII data
    • TaxId on an Organization is required to be treated as Sensitive data
    • We have fields  indicating credit limits or similar risk data that are considered Sensitive

    As a Data Modeler, I know these fields exist in our model, but someone new to the team or from a different part of the organization may not "just know" about these fields. We would like to be able to add a classifier to the specific attribute(s) as part of the core configuration so that the field's sensitivity can be easily identified, audited, and sent downstream to our data catalog.

    The model configuration for attributes has items like "required" or "hidden" available, and we'd use something like "dataClassification" on the attribute to indicate if it was PII-Sensitive, PII-General, PCI, Sensitive, etc. I think we'd prefer a configurable list of arbitrary classification values so we can tailor it to our needs, but a Reltio controlled/defined list would be a start.

    Example of desired config option using generic Individual model:

                    {
                        "label": "SSN",
                        "name": "SSN",
                        "description": "Unique identifier issued to the individual by the Social Security Administration",
                        "type": "String",
                        "dataClassification": ["PII", "Private"],
                        "hidden": false,
                        "important": false,
                        "system": false,
                        "required": false,
                        "faceted": true,
                        "searchable": true,
                        "uri": "configuration/entityTypes/Individual/attributes/SSN",
                        "skipInDataAccess": false
                    },

    Hi Wes

    I think your usecase certainly has appeal outside of your individual requirement. I would raise an enhancement request and put the Aha! link in this post, so others when they look for the usecase can see something has already been raised and can vote on it in Aha! Our portal for enhancement requests works based on meritocracy (so the more votes, the more likely it will be put into production). I will also flag it to our product management team when you share the link.

    Thanks for sharing your usecase!

    Done! I have added the idea "Add "Data Classification" attribute configuration in data model", and it can be voted on here

    Thank you!
