Data zones overview

On Privacera Platform, data zones on are distinct areas in a data lake that serve specific and well-defined purposes.

Data owners and data governors can create data zones based on domains, business functional ownership, or other logical groupings. Some examples of data zones:

  • A data zone to manage customer data under the guardianship of a customer data steward.

  • A data zone to manage finance data assets under the guardianship of a data administrator from the finance organization.

Data zones simplify data access management and relieve IT of the burden of managing policies for the entire enterprise. The administrative function for a data zone can be delegated to specific data owners who have the proper permissions/roles to administer the zone. Administrators can apply selective workflow policies to their data zones.
