Data Governance

Data Governance and System Interoperability:

Effective data governance is crucial for ensuring interoperability in systems. Data governance frameworks should encompass policies, standards, and procedures that facilitate the seamless exchange and integration of data across different systems. This includes defining data formats, common data elements, and interoperability standards to ensure consistent and accurate data sharing.

Data management practices should address data quality, security, and privacy concerns. Compliance with privacy laws of relevant jurisdictions, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or national data protection laws, is essential to safeguard individuals' privacy rights in cross-border data exchanges.

Refer ISO 27001 and ISO 29100 for Information security management systems and Privacy framework.

Data Management in Compliance with Privacy Laws:

Data management involves handling, organizing, and processing data while respecting privacy laws. Organizations must implement appropriate measures to collect and store data lawfully, ensuring individuals' consent and providing transparent information about data usage. Data must be accurately maintained, regularly updated and securely stored to protect against unauthorized access or breaches.

When data is no longer necessary, organizations should follow proper deletion protocols, employing secure and irreversible deletion methods. Compliance with international privacy standards such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the Privacy Shield Framework ensures that data management practices align with legal requirements and uphold individuals' privacy rights.

Data Storage and Privacy Laws:

Data storage requires organizations to implement secure systems and safeguards to protect data from unauthorized access, breaches, or loss. Encryption, access controls, and data backups help maintain data confidentiality and integrity.

Privacy laws, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or APEC Privacy Framework, dictate specific requirements for data storage, including provisions for data protection, retention periods, and international data transfers. Adhering to these privacy laws and standards ensures that personal data is stored securely, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access or misuse.

Data Deletion and Privacy Compliance:

Data deletion involves securely and permanently removing data when it is no longer needed or requested by the data subject.

Privacy laws, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) right to erasure or "right to be forgotten," require organizations to promptly delete personal data upon request. International standards like ISO 27001 for information security management or ISO 29100 for privacy framework implementation provide guidelines for secure data deletion practices. By following these standards and privacy laws, organizations can ensure that data is deleted in a manner that respects individuals' privacy rights, preventing any potential unauthorized access or unintended data retention.
