Featuring 991 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Data Awareness improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 991 standard requirements:

  1. Are your analysts and decision-makers having to use multiple systems and correlate information manually in order to gain situational awareness or know what is happening in a particular location?

  2. Do you rapidly build an authoritative data source catalog with harmonized entities, relationships and metadata (knowledge graph) from varied systems to provide a rich understanding of data?

  3. Has the leader a really good information base (both hard data and sensitivity to feelings and needs of people) and a reputation for consistently good decisions that people respect?

  4. Do computer operations personnel protect reports and output containing sensitive, official use only, or classified information from casual browsing and other unauthorized use?

  5. Does the provider have APIs that minimize the amount of sensitive data available on a consumers mobile device and make the provider responsible for handling data encryption?

  6. Does the security policy include specific roles and responsibilities, risk assessment activities, control and mitigation concerning the management of sensitive payment data?

  7. Can an information model be created that captures the superset of all the classes/attributes/relationships required by the full range of methods engines under consideration?

  8. What poses the greatest threat to data at rest and do information security practitioners know where sensitive or confidential data at rest is located within organization?

  9. What are the issues, challenges and possible impediments to effectively locating unprotected sensitive or confidential data residing on peripheral or temporary devices?

  10. Are all forms of sensitive information (programs, data, output, reports in both human-readable and machine-readable versions) treated with the same level of control?

Results

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Data Awareness projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Data Awareness investments work better.

This Data Awareness All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
