Add Taxonomy

Taxonomy is set of parameters to subsume concept of information for purpose of capture, management and presentation. For your convenience, DDC Collector goes with the following predefined taxonomies:

  1. Personally identifiable information covering GDPR scope.
  2. Medical records covering HIPAA scope.
  3. Financial records and payment cards information covering GLBA and PCI DSS scope.

Each taxonomy contains a set of terms. You can add, edit and remove these terms using configuration rules (Clues). For evaluation purposes, you will be fine with the following types of clues:

  • Standard—A single word or multi-word concept. Matched on a fuzzy basis with word stemming enabled. Use quotes around single words to disable stemming. Use double quotes around phrases to invoke exact phrase matching.
  • Case Sensitive—A case sensitive phrase match clue.

  • RegEx—A clue based on a Regular Expression.

For the full list of supported taxonomies, refer to Built-in Taxonomies.
