HU to host organizational data strategy forum

The law of digital data states the more people who have access to the data, the greater the risk to the organization. And, the corollary is the more you share the data, the more value your organization gains. How do you reckon these two ideas?

The ability of an organization to manage its data is crucial to survival in 2019 and years to come.

Harrisburg University’s Analytics Institute will host a free hour-long community forum, dubbed “What’s Your Data Strategy?” from 12-1 p.m. Dec. 13, where we will discuss strategies for implementing data governance in your organization. The forum will take place in the Select Medical Learning Center on the 11th floor of Harrisburg University (Room 1151).

Data governance is the set of comprehensive data and risk management policies and processes that organizations must establish and follow for good data management. We will examine some of the best practices that you can implement in your organization for data ownership, rights and responsibilities of data owners and accountability for the data.

A light lunch will be provided. If your organization’s policy precludes you from accepting lunch at free events, there will be a collection jar. The value of the lunch is $5.
