Community Forum: What’s Your Data Strategy?

12.13.19 @ 12PM – 1PM
Room 1151 | Harrisburg University of Science and Technology

The law of digital data states the more people that have access to the data, the greater the risk to the organization. And, the corollary is the more you share the data, the more value your organization gains. How do you reckon these two ideas?

The ability of an organization to manage its data is crucial to survival in 2019 and years to come. In this one-hour community forum, we will discuss some strategies for implementing data governance in your organization. Data governance is the set of comprehensive data and risk management policies and processes that organizations must establish and follow for good data management. We will examine some of the best practices that you can implement in your organization for data ownership, rights and responsibilities of data owners and accountability for the data.

A light lunch will be provided. If your organization’s policy precludes you from accepting lunch at free events, there will be a collection jar. The value of the lunch is $5.
