QOTD Schmidt on the Value of Data

Many businesses, governments and individuals are still unclear of the true value of data and where it resides and who has ownership is even less clear. We need to be better at controlling and managing data and understand the expectations of the data owners and providers. For example, if we give personal data to identify and validate ourselves – this data is only required for a short period of time and could then be destroyed. -- Professor Howard A. Schmidt, CISSP, president of ISF.
