The data integration and virtualization policy helps to mitigate risks to personal privacy when integrating, replicating, or virtualizing personal data, and ensures integration, replication, or virtualization of data only occurs when necessary. Data integration, replication, and virtualization can lessen the burden on staff and lower production costs; however, it can also raise real and perceived risks in terms of privacy, security, redundancy, and quality of data. The data integration and virtualization policy helps to mitigate some of these risks by providing an outline as to when data sets should be integrated, replicated, or virtualized.
Risks Addressed by Policy:
- Irreparable brand damage.
- Fines and penalties resulting from improper data integration, replication, or virtualization.
- Breaches to sensitive data.
