Managing Data: ‘Setting up the Data Infrastructure’

This guide provides a detailed overview of effective data management strategies, including storage and security.


Most people do not realize that data occupies physical space, even if people imagine them as merely bits and bytes in the digital realm.

Before an organization begins to collect data, it must develop a sound capability for data management. This resource provides an overview of approaches an organization can implement to ensure data is stored, managed, and accessed in a responsible, secure, and protected manner.
