Data Governance

All Glossary Terms

Data governance is the collection of policies, processes and standards that define how data assets can be used within an organization and who has authority over them. Governance dictates who can use what data and in what way. This ensures that data assets remain secure and adhere to agreed upon quality standards. As data privacy regulations increase, strong data governance is increasingly important to reduce the risk of data breaches and major fines, as well as to protect customer trust.
