Data have become a driver of growth and change and are gaining importance as the main raw material of the knowledge society in all areas of life. Thanks to today's technological possibilities for collecting, storing and processing data, potentials for new, innovative products and services and for optimising processes and decisions are emerging. Access to data, clear rights relationships and the ability to analyse data are becoming important competitive parameters.
Data policy is understood to be the body of objectives and measures designed to achieve this, leading to the creation of added value through data use and the protection of personal data in accordance with the latest standards. This added value can vary in nature depending on the perspective and the actors involved.
