Documentation of ownership of data

Data ownership refers to both the possession of and responsibility for information. Ownership implies power as well as control. The control of information includes not just the ability to access, create, modify, package, derive benefit from, sell or remove data, but also the right to assign these access privileges to others (Loshin, 2002). Data ownership is the right to control the use of data. It is the responsibility of the data owner to ensure that the data is used in a responsible manner and that it is kept secure. Data ownership is important because it helps to ensure that the data is used in a way that is beneficial to the data owner. It also helps to ensure that the data is not misused or abused.
