Commvault’s Senior Director of Engineering, David Langley, presented “Data Protection and Information Governance Across Data Silos” at the e-Records 2019 Conference on November 15, 2019. Check out a few highlights from this presentation below, view the slides, and explore some of the other topics that were covered during this year’s conference.
Commvault’s Main Takeaways
- Use data management software that allows users to store and to manage their own data in the cloud while having access to customer support and to storage space that is able to keep up with the needs of the public sector.
- For governments to thoroughly understand the data they hold, the metadata of records need equal recognition and consideration for proper data management and security (e.g., IP address, row and column data, geo-location, etc.).
- Through mapping, governments can identify how sought-after certain records are and which records may need to be moved or deleted to save money and time.
- Governments can learn how to use the data they collect instead of just accumulating and storing large quantities of information. How can your government use its data to identify ways to be more efficient, to provide better service to internal and external stakeholders, and to find ways to reduce costs?
- Secure cloud storage can be a solution to the increasing demands of government data collection, storage, and security needs. How do you think it can be used to strengthen your government’s disaster recovery plan?
In sum, consider using software that can help you do the following:
a) Target privacy, security, and policy issues by monitoring your government’s data management system and by continually reevaluating its data access controls.
b) Collect, store, and organize data in secure and adaptable cloud environments that can comply with local and state laws and rules.
