For large enterprises with many interconnected applications, generating test data can be a challenge.
Even more so for big data projects, which is where masking comes in..
Take a copy of production DB from different products around the same timeline and mask the data for GDPR compliance.
Surely easier said than done, but can be very effective.
IMHO three main requirements to build this:
1. A quick guideline to identify what data will be classified as ‘sensitive’ and ensure it’s GDPR compliant.
2. A masking platform which masks value the same way across, helping with consistent data
3. Creation and usage of test environments is efficient and fit for purpose
