What is UDAPS?

Unified Data Access & Protection Strategy (or UDAPS) is a management approach to the handling of data, not a technology, service or protocol.

Unified Data Access & Protection Strategy (or UDAPS) is a management approach to the handling of data, not a technology, service or protocol. UDAPS advocates treating data and its handling seriously, unifying the thinking to bring together processes and services into a single strategy for data management within the organisation. UDAPS encourages a consistent and coordinated approach to assessing the problem of valuable data, its organisation, how access to that data is managed, and how it’s protected.

UDAPS seeks to provide decision-makers with a straightforward means of developing a strategy for the data in their organisations that is practical and proportionate, and focused on management imperatives not technology. UDAPS encourages decision-makers to look at their data in three key dimensions:

  • Which Data – Decision-makers can identify their various pools of data by source and usage, such as: data about third parties such as customers, information about day to day operations, human resources information, financial information, and so on.
  • What Access – Different types of data will need to be accessed by different groups inside the organisation and outside, by different methods such as mobile or desk, and permission levels will need to be assigned.
  • What Protection – Each type of data will need appropriate protection, whether that is centralised, on-site or off-site, protection that allows recovery of a past version, or one-off archiving at the end of a project or period of time

The starting point is to examine the present situation by identifying the key pools of data, where they are now, who has access to it and how, and what protects that data. That review enables decision-makers to see the imperatives and how best to develop a single strategy for how best to manage their data, where it is, who has access and how, and what are the right mechanisms to protect this key asset.
