Essential data sanitization techniques for robust security at every development stage 🔐

Being GDPR-compliant across all your projects is a daily challenge—especially if you’re managing sensitive user data on your projects. Upsun adopts a GDPR everywhere approach with high levels of built-in security and compliance as standard—but there are ways to secure your data on our PaaS further when it comes to preview environments.

Each time you create a new Git branch on a project on Upsun, the corresponding environment inherits the data (assets and database) from its parent. This means that potentially sensitive data from your production website could be exposed to the preview environment.

So, how do you navigate this and ensure your application remains compliant? ✨ Two words: data sanitization. ✨ The deliberate and permanent erasure of sensitive data from a storage device making the data non-recoverable.

Dive into the key methods of data sanitization whcih you can implement for to ensure your data remains safe at every stage of development 👉 learn more now.
