Good Governance

Keeping track of information assets however is often seen more challenging.
In financial services, insurance, healthcare and other business sectors the business goals for data governance have been dictated by legislative requirements for some time. But regulatory compliance requirements are getting stricter. For example, all companies doing business with customers in the EU are required to comply with European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requirements starting mid 2018, and hefty fines are set for those who do not.
Even in unregulated areas good governance is the key to understand and control the business and mitigate operational risks. Data governance is at the intersection of business processes, products and services, corporate policies and governance structure to eliminate ambiguity and risk across the enterprise.
