The power of data in driving businesses today is well-recognized. Data has become power, and data-based decisions are the norm. Firms have a lot of data coming in externally and more data is being created or updated internally, so the idea of data being ‘governed’ makes sense.

That said, what exactly is data governance and what does data governance do for the bottom line?

Simply put, data governance is a set of processes that ensures that important data assets are formally managed throughout the enterprise. It ensures that trusted information is used for critical business processes, decision making and accounting.

Learning Objectives

After attending this event you will be able to:
Define data governance, including the managing the availability, usability, integrity, and security of data.
Demonstrate a general understanding of data governance frameworks, such as COSO’s Internal Control framework and ISACA’s COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies).
Identify the stages of the data life cycle; i.e., data capture, data maintenance, data synthesis, data usage, data analytics, data publication, data archival, and data purging.
