Mastering Access History & Column Lineage

Become a master at access history and column lineage in Snowflake. Join our Snowflake Pros as we discuss and show: 

Access History – How to: 

  • Utilize Data Discovery: 
    • Uncover unused data to decide whether to keep or delete it.
  • Track Sensitive Data Movement: 
    • Follow the data journey from external cloud storage (e.g. Amazon S3) to Snowflake tables.
    • Trace the movement of data within Snowflake tables.
    • After tracing, implement policies (masking and row access) to protect data. 
    • Regulate access control settings for stages and tables. 
    • Tag stages, tables, and columns to maintain compliance. 
  • Data Validation: 
    • Validate the accuracy and integrity of reports and visualizations. 
    • Receive notifications before dropping or altering tables or views. 
  • Compliance Auditing: 
    • Identify Snowflake users who performed write operations and when. 
    • Meet compliance regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. 
  • Enhance Data Governance: 
    • Get a comprehensive view of data access, timing, and movement from source to target. 

Column Lineage – How to: 

  • Protect Derived Objects: 
    • Easily tag sensitive columns without extra work. 
    • Protect tables containing sensitive columns with row access policies. 
    • Protect sensitive columns with masking policies or tag-based masking policies.
  • Sensitive Column Copy Frequency: 
    • Determine the number of objects containing a sensitive column. 
    • Prove regulatory compliance standards (e.g. GDPR). 
  • Root Cause Analysis: 
    • Trace data to its source to solve problems. 
    • Pinpoint points of failure from poor data quality. 
    • Reduce columns to analyze during troubleshooting.
