Over the decades, organizations have created and accumulated an inordinate amount of data and the amount grows daily. The challenge for many organizations is threefold: we do not know what data we have, how many copies we have, nor where those copies are located. Proper data management starts with an accurate and complete inventory of all data and information assets. Internal audits ability to guide our organizations starts by improving our own data literacy.
