Before you begin: review the information provided in this resource: https://www.pic.gov/sites/default/files/RACI%20Chart%20Overview%20v2.pdf

It takes a team of individuals throughout an organization who work together to safeguard the integrity and confidentiality of data resources. But, how does an organization know that it has enough people in the right roles performing the right tasks to ensure that digital assets will be protected from loss or harm?

The RACI matrix is a tool that can be used to outline the various roles and responsibilities required to provide this protection. For this discussion, you will prepare a RACI matrix that outlines roles of key players in the organization who have data protection responsibilities (i.e. asset security and data protection). Your matrix should specifically address executives (C-level), managers, supervisors, employees. The tasks that you should address are: generating information, using information, classifying information, and managing / using / implementing data loss prevention technologies.

After you have completed your chart, write a brief discussion of responsibilities for each role listed in the rows of your chart. Each role should be addressed in a separate paragraph.

Combine your matrix and your narrative descriptions into a briefing paper for a working group that has been charged with reviewing and improving the company’s data classification business processes. Post your paper in the body of your reply to this topic.

Provide in-text citations and references for 3 or more authoritative sources. Put the reference list at the end of your posting. Use a consistent and professional style for your citations and reference list entries. (Hanging indent is NOT required.)
