In this checklist, we will examine best practices for data management that support ongoing compliance with a variety of regulations.
Some of these practices involve the assessment and classification of data assets within the corporate information landscape. Others involve practices for data quality, metadata management, and master data management, while still others focus on techniques for managing access to data assets containing private information, methods for protection, and, most important, guidelines for establishing collaborative oversight of the enterprise information inventory.
Understanding these practices and techniques helps institute an operational framework to ensure compliance with ongoing and emerging regulations that mandate protection of private and personal data as well as to formalize methods for classifying, organizing, and protecting all types of sensitive data assets.
