Data Inventory

Oct 1, 2020

Also known as an authority record of a company’s data assets. Identifies data as it moves across various systems and serves as a reference of how and where data is shared. The data may be categorized (by business model) and a feedback loop is created to identify (what records contain), track (who owns, accesses, and uses data), and mitigate inconsistencies in data and data disparities. (adapted from: NIST, 2020; IAPP, 2020.)
