Data governance is, first and foremost, a data management function to ensure the quality, integrity, security, and usability of the data collected by an organization. It engages people, processes and technologies to maximize data values across an organization while protecting with appropriate security controls.
Data Governance can be split in the following six pillars:
Is the process of organizing, structuring, and describing data assets in a way that makes them easily discoverable and understandable for users. It involves creating metadata, or data about the data, such as descriptions, keywords, and relationships to other data assets.
Refers to the protection of sensitive information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. It includes a variety of measures such as encryption, access controls, and monitoring to safeguard data and ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
Refers to the accuracy, completeness, consistency, and reliability of data. It ensures that data is fit for its intended use and can be trusted for decision-making.
Refers to the responsibility and accountability for the data, including its collection, storage, use, and dissemination. It ensures that data is handled ethically and legally, and that any potential harm caused by the data is identified and mitigated.
Data lifecycle management
Refers to the process of managing data throughout its entire lifecycle, from creation to archiving or deletion. It involves defining policies, procedures, and processes to ensure data is properly collected, stored, used, and disposed of in an efficient, secure, and compliant manner.
Ethics and privacy
Data ethics refers to the moral principles and guidelines that govern how data is collected, stored, used, and shared. Privacy, on the other hand, refers to the ability of individuals to control who has access to their personal information and how it is used.
