The Key Questions to Ask Yourself Around Your Data Strategy

  1. What data should be collected? This may seem obvious, but it is all too often simply answered with “everything”.
  1. How long do I need to keep the data? You should monitor report usage to determine what analyses and data sources may no longer be needed and could be removed or archived.
  1. Where do I want to store the data? Some data needs to be available on-demand while other data may not be as time critical. A data strategy should consider what needs to be archived and where to archive it.
  1. Who has control over your data privacy and security? Who can access your data and what level of detail can they see? How should data be protected and/or encrypted?
  1. Where can your data be accessed? (trans-border issues). Some countries place restrictions on data that can be transmitted across their borders. Make sure your organization, or your cloud vendor, is not inadvertently violating governmental restrictions.
  1. What data can be displayed? Government and various country regulations control the use, storage, and display of personal data.
  1. Data governance; who owns the data? Who is responsible for its management and access control?
