Data Lifecycle Management 1

  • Data collection
  • Data access
  • Data usage
  • Data storage
  • Data transfer
  • Data destruction

Data might be stored in forms of text, picture or audio in main media channels including papers or other electronic media such as computers, phones, hard disks, tapes, CD and USB.

Therefore, every process needs to be designed to determine a person who would be able to access and the storage format. And, the unused data also need to be destroyed safely. Because the importance of data management is to not only help the data to be used more efficiently, but also to increase confidence that important information will not leak into the public.
