Data movement / Data flow

  • Data Flow defines the movement of data. Data can move between cloud vendors, accounts, services and even regions. When mapping data movement, we can identify two main types of Data Flows:
  • Potential Data Flow (configured data flows) - a data flow that was configured in the environment, but is not necessarily active.
  • Active Data Flow - when data movement has been identified and recorded in action. For example: code in Lambda function performed a read transaction from a specific database.
