The Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, has presented the report, Standards for data economy, que contiene más de 20 estándares disponibles y en desarrollo para impulsar la regulación del mercado de los datos, conforme a la European Standardisation Strategy of the European Commission. Data economy is playing an increasingly important economic role in terms of business volume and job creation.
Data is currently an essential factor in the competitiveness of companies and the development of markets, and the European Union is developing specific regulations within the framework of the European Data Strategy. In this regard, experts from various UNE Committees have drawn up this document to provide companies with the necessary tools to exploit data successfully and consistently.
The report sets out the main standards regarding data governance, data management and data quality. "As in other sectors, the data market is regulated by standards and it is expected that, in agreement with the European Commission, these will be used to demonstrate compliance with developing European legislation. With this in mind, we have prepared this report to enable standardisation to be applied to this market", explained José Antonio Jiménez, UNE's Digitisation Coordinator.
The focus of data regulation is on protecting the privacy and rights of people in the use of data, while at the same time facilitating ethical and productive data management.
