Data minimization

More Data, More Problems:Why Data Minimization should be a first step before De-identification,Anonymization or similar methods.

Data minimization can shrink a company’s data footprint which lessens the impact of a data breach on businesses and consumers alike. Data minimization is a practice business must put in place, even if they are already using another strategy to prevent identification of stored personal data. Minimization is more than a best practice; it is a standard that allows companies to show due diligence and a commitment to protecting consumer data.
