Updating a document's classification if necessary

A document's classification may change overtime as information is removed or added. Updating its classification ensures that only authorised people are able to access it.

Why is it important?

A document's classification reflects the sensitivity of the information inside. If the information inside changes and the sensitivity does not, unauthorised people may view it. This can cause data breaches.

By updating a document's classification or notifying someone that a document requires updating, data can remain secure.
