Your production data could be more exposed than you think during software testing.

Data masking during software testing (or otherwise) is not the simple process that the uninitiated might suppose. Gone are the days when replacing personally identifiable information with random characters makes the grade. Obfuscating data for use in development, testing, and QA environments means you need to be able to quickly provide teams with secure sets of consistent, meaningful data that can be used again and again. But this can be difficult to achieve, particularly in geographically dispersed organizations, and especially if you don't adopt a systematic, centralized approach to de-identifying sensitive data.
