Every time a development or test environment is refreshed or a development environment is built, real data comes comes with that. On a simple brochure site that might only be account emails and passwords. This is problematic from a security perspective. On other sites that might involve a whole list of sensitive, identifying personal data. This is problematic from a privacy perspective. We developed an open source Drush script called Site Sanitization. At the end of this session the attendee will understand the nature of the problem and understand how the script works that will eliminate the proliferation of sensitive data. The script was developed with Pantheon and Lando in mind, but it should be portable to other hosting environments that use webhooks such as Acquia and Platform.sh.
