It is essential to ensure that business information is accessible only to those who have a “business” reason to do so
Data Governance is one of the most important initiatives in today’s IT, as it involves people, processes, and procedures, in its aim to provide a comprehensive overview of unstructured data residing on company systems that will:
– Give access only to those who need the data to perform their business duties;
– Reduce the risk of inappropriate file access;
– Increase the security of the data.
Data Governance and its reason for existing is clear:
To ensure that information residing on IT systems (such as File Systems, Document Management Systems, etc.) is accessible only to those who have a “business” reason to do so, and is in line with their role in the organization. It automatically provides assurance that “the right information will be accessible to the right people”. Thanks to Data Governance, it will be easier to be compliant to many of today’s laws and regulations.
