A CDE Definition
A service that disposes of the digital assets of a person upon death. Digital assets include social networking data, photos, email history, blogs and other files stored locally and online. Similar to the executor of a regular last will and testament, the digital executor follows the wishes of the individual and distributes the assets to the beneficiaries by providing them with the necessary information. In addition, the executor may be instructed to delete files as well as post pre-written messages on various sites. See digital asset.
Any digital material owned by an enterprise or individual including text, graphics, audio, video and animations. A digital asset is owned by a company if it was created on the computer by its employees or if it was custom developed for and purchased by the organization. Images scanned into the computer are also a digital asset if the original work was owned by the company. Today, enterprises have a huge amount of digital assets that require managing.
