Morning, everybody. How you doing on the show today? We are going to talk about applying the con Mari method to your data. Now. What is the con Mari method? You're probably wondering well, if you are a subscriber for Netflix, you might have seen on January 1st a new show dropped.

I may befall the New York Times bestseller list and stumble across the name there that name is Mary. Kondo. She is a tiny force of organizational power. She is a guru within the organization answer tidying-up Community have no she has this new Netflix show tidying up with Marie. Kondo.

She has a New York Times bestseller on the bestseller list for 80 + weeks and con Mary is her method for cleaning and tidying up now. It's a little unorthodox. It's nothing necessarily revolutionary. But the biggest thing that is part of this method is when you're looking at an item weather to donated a word to move it out of your life is whether or not that item gives you Joy now in your personal life.

Entirely makes sense. Why am I holding on to all of these old clothes? Why am I holding on to this book? Is it something that is sentimental and provides Joy or is it just weighing me down through sort of obligation of keeping it in my life or in my space.

Obviously. The goal is to reduce the amount of stuff to make sure that the stuff that you have within your environment is really optimized to your lifestyle. Now why I want to talk about this today is because companies don't do this with their data. In fact, the push is the exact opposite to gather as much data as you can and hold on to it just in case so while you're not going to apply that label or that question of does this data give me joy in organizational context you do really need to ask that simple question is do we need to collect this data and do we need to store it? The reason why this is important is because as much as data is an important resource for your business and its worth Armani just look no further than the date of broker businesses on how Facebook and Google survive.

It's all updated driven, right? The data is the new oil. I don't like that metaphor. But I mean it kind of conveys the weight and importance that data hassle course companies are like we want to gather as much of it as you can put the flip side is the date is also a liability.

If you have to manage the city of the story of the process that you have to control access to Witnesses were most companies fall down. It'll keep enough data about their data. They don't trace the source of that data. They don't actually measure who should be accessing another story last week about.

Ring the smart doorbells now owned by Amazon and I'm saying that all their internal employees including some overseas had access to every video app that every customer Dever streamed from the doorbell and that's not uncommon. It's shocking to hear like wait a minute. They have no internal data controls pretty much most organizations that I talk to if it's essentially your part of the organization or you're not they don't go For them not to Define who should be looking at customer data for internal data like HR and finance they do but for customer day today, don't they just assume it's as big giant pool that everybody should have access to but that increases your risk.

It increases your threat increases the potential of abusive that day. But also increases the potential that that data is leaked out somewhere in a method that you're not approving with no hack and Insider threats or more commonly, just an honest mistake. We see that all the time and if I were people of misconfigured cloud storage, and now all of a sudden all this data is exposed that data has value of that data may have a personal impact.

So you can't continue forward with this method of I'm just going to collect all the data and we're going to keep it forever. You need to apply a logical data management and information management strategies. I don't get me wrong. This stuff is super super hard, but it's critical to privacy.

It's critical to security cuz if you don't know the value and the parameters of use around what your story how can you protect it? How can you maintain privacy? How can you make Security so don't know. When should you really question? You don't go back to that con Mari method for a minute.

Not only should you really questioned whether you're collecting this data, but you in the information security world in the organizational or do you need to take that a step further to say who should have access to this data? So do we need in the first place and do we really need it? Not just in case for a rainy day you need to actually measure that or do we need this? Is there a likelihood of us actually using the stator for some business purpose down the line.

If so, what are the parameters around that lets track the Genesis of this data. And fur, please please I was going to swear they're going to rain it back. Please Implement internal Access Control just because somebody works for the organization does not mean they need to see all of the date of the organization is stewarding.

That is absolutely critical. I know it's goes against our nature because I like Jojo works for the team. I like Francine. She's on the team like there's no reason we shouldn't trust her. It's not a question of trust. It's a question of blast radius reduction of risk reduction. If you do not actively need to manage data.

Touch that didn't you should not have access to it. It's that simple course the devil's in the details. So implementing. It is far from simple, but it's something you should start asking your staff know if you need to take a little bit of time and binge-watch tidying up with Marie kondo on Netflix go for it.

That's your homework from Horning's with Mark. That's your homework from me. I'd love to hear what you think about managing your data about tithing up your data. Do you ever try to your day tours? It just is ever-growing black hole that's weighing your organization down. Do you realize how much is weighing your organization down?
