Getting Started with Sensitive Data Governance

To get started with Risk Analysis for Sensitive Data Governance, install the software and then complete the Sensitive Data Governance setup wizard.


  1. Verify that your environment meets the system and hardware requirements for Sensitive Data Governance.

  2. Install the Index Store package, the Content Analyzer package, and the Web Server package.

    These entities perform the content indexing and personal data analysis operations required for Risk Analysis. After the packages are installed on a server, you will use the server to create an Index Server in the Sensitive Data Governance wizard.

  3. If you plan to use Sensitive Data Governance to analyze servers that have file system data, add domains as potential sources of data.

  4. Complete the guided setup for Sensitive Data Governance.

    In the guided setup, you create a data classification plan and an inventory. In the data classification plan, you create an Index Server by using the server where you installed the Index Store, the Content Analyzer, and the Web Server packages.

  5. Set permissions for users so that they can access Sensitive Data Governance.

    To set permissions for a user, create an association between the Data Controller security role, the CommCell computer, and the infrastructure administrator and the data controller users.

What to Do Next

After you finish setting up Sensitive Data Governance, monitor assets in your enterprise for personal data and begin processing subject access requests.
