Corporate Data, Record Management and Security



In any organization, Data is considered a primary asset and as such must be managed and protected in a manner that is commensurate to its value.  Security of corporate data is also necessary in today’s environment because data processing represents a concentration of valuable assets in the form of information, equipment and personnel.  The dependence on automated information system for management decision and the driving of the core operations of many organizations by electronic devices create a unique vulnerability for such organizations. 

The data management policy must ensure that data is protected in all of its forms, on all media, during all phases of its life cycle, from unauthorized or inappropriate access, use, modification, disclosure or destruction, and are extended to customer data assets that exist.
