Data masking helps protect private and confidential data by replacing sensitive information, such as phone numbers and Social Security numbers, salary data, health care information and other personal data, with dummy data. If there was an exposure, the real data is never actually compromised. Data masking has the specific goal of protecting the original production data from individuals that do not need real data to perform their tasks.
