Information (Data) Inventory Questions

  • What information are we collecting?
  • Where and how are we collecting it?
  • Who owns it?
  • Who has access to it?
  • What are we doing with it?
  • What would be the impact to the organization if it got into the wrong hands?
  • What controls are in place?
  • Are efforts to safeguard the information commensurate with its worth?
  • Are we gathering unnecessary information that represents potential risk without opportunity for reward?
  • Are we maximizing the value of what we collect?
  • Could information have more value if we loosened restrictions on it?
