Data Governance: Unknown Data Creates Considerable Risk
Does your organization have the ability to securely manage data effectively?
“Data Governance comprises of the overall management of data in relationship to people, processes and technology needed to create data standards across the business enterprise.”
Failing to quickly identify or structure data creates weakness that often lead to data-related issues. Incorporating a Data Governance program ensures that organizations are properly managing internal and external data. With the complexity of data layered over multi-tier IT ecosystems the need for Data Governance has grown exponentially as this is the first step in improving risk management associated to data quality.
Poor data quality can negatively impact an organization in several ways, especially as it continues to increase and expands its data within complex multi-tier systems. Enhancing data quality derives from two main factors: reducing overall IT cost and the need to improve risk management associated to data quality. Data Governance allows organizations to set data standards which aid in eliminating security breaches or exploits in the system correlated to data theft.
Is your organization willing to deal with the cost of data breaches caused by poor data governance and data quality?
Why is Data Governance Important?
Data Governance programs are a set of standards delegated for businesses to take the proper measures to ensure that internal and external data assets meet a certain level of quality. Having data governance in place allows businesses to resolve data-related issues by creating a process that is documented, standardized and easily repeatable. This process should be constructed to support regulatory and compliance constraints in relationship to access management, privacy, security and data management.
Benefits of Data Governance:
- Reducing or Eliminate Re-Work
- Diminish the risk of regulatory fines
- Set requirements for Data Distribution to improve data security
- Increase the revenue potential of existing data
- Improved business decision making
- Accountability of Data Quality
- Optimize Staff Productivity
- Establish data baselines for improved efforts
Is Your Organization Vulnerable to Data-Related Issues? Would You Even Know?
Early adoption of a Data Governance program is an invaluable part of preventing data-driven issues within an organization handling lost, fragmented and underutilized data across several databases. Do you have the tools necessary to formulate and standardize your data throughout the organization? Data security flaws play a major role on in data breaches. As data is created at a faster pace it is being managed at an even slower pace, which make it easier to miss problems within the overall quality of that data. Additionally, the need to integrate acquired data sets and systems from purchased data, ongoing data feeds or data from mergers and acquisitions make it extremely easy to miss vulnerabilities spanning across several databases.
