Seven Data Archiving Trends for 2022: Data Archiving Trends

Data archiving impacts several organizational functions, including information governance, data privacy and cybersecurity. It’s amazing how they all interrelate. With that in mind, Hanzo has identified seven data archiving trends that you need to keep in mind for 2022.

The aptly named article (7 Data Archiving Trends: What We Expect to See in 2022, written by Will Walker) covers seven data archiving trends for 2022 (duh!). Here is one of them:

As the chief privacy officer role grows, CEOs will not be able to deny knowledge of their data policies.


With the growth in data privacy laws—which we’ll talk more about in a moment—companies are endowing their chief privacy officers with more power and responsibility. As part of that movement, chief privacy officers increasingly report directly to their CEOs.

That means that those CEOs will no longer be able to deny firsthand knowledge of their organization’s data policies reasonably. If a company is collecting personal data from customers or visitors and using or selling that data, the CEO who’s been meeting with the chief privacy officer for years will not be able to claim plausible deniability about those actions.

Companies need to have clear and transparent data policies that are—you guessed it—archived in a non-rewriteable format to prove what they did with data and how they advised customers of their rights and responsibilities concerning their data.
