Data Governance

Data governance is the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity, and security of the data used in an organization. It involves the development of policies, procedures, and standards for collecting, storing, processing, and sharing data, in addition to ensuring that the data is of high quality and protected from unauthorized access.

The goal of data governance is to ensure that data is effectively used to support decision-making, meet regulatory obligations, and achieve the organization’s goals. Data governance involves many stakeholders, including IT, business leaders, and data stewards, who collaborate to manage and govern data as a critical organizational asset.
