One key element of data is their value to the organization. An organization usually establishes a Data Resource Management or Information Resources Management are terms that have been synonymous with organizations who manage data general audience, internal use only, confidential, restricted confidential, and registered confidential for documents and reports. This classification structure may also apply to the databases, files, relational tables, fields, and unique combination of data (views) produced by applications. Password policies, access permissions and registration of person to access applications and systems, and auditing of these policies are processes that data management is typically involved to preserve the organizational integrity of its data and information. Not only is data and information security important, but, so is the technology that delivers it.
For example, the DAMA-Data Management Book of Knowledge (DMBok) provides a management framework for implementing data security for an organization. It covers the following areas:
- Understanding Data Security Needs and Regulatory Requirements
- Defining Data Security Policy, Standards, Controls and Procedures
- Managing individuals (users), passwords, and Group Memberships
- Managing Data Views and Accessing
- Monitoring individual Authentication and Access Behavior
- Classify Information Confidentially
- Audit Data Security
As an individual or an organization, these management practices can help you to manage the security about your organization's or personal data.
