pp. 64-68

The ubiquitous collection, use, and flow of data challenge existing frameworks for data protection and management. Organizations collect and derive data from myriad sources and use it for various purposes, so that the rules that apply to their data holdings vary. The authors describe data governance in this complex and dynamic environment, where the rules and obligations that govern how organizations use and protect information attach to the data and must be met wherever or by whomever collects, processes, or stores it. They suggest data tagging to facilitate such an approach.
