The key to ensuring data quality and data protection.
In the digital world, the handling of data plays an increasingly important role. Companies collect, store and use large amounts of data to optimise their business processes and make better decisions. At the same time, however, there is also a growing responsibility to handle the data securely and responsibly and to ensure data protection.
This is where data governance comes into play. Data governance describes the rules, processes and responsibilities that are defined for handling data within a company. It serves to ensure data quality and guarantee data protection.
First of all, it plays an important role in ensuring data quality. Incorrect or inconsistent data can lead to wrong decisions and thus cause economic damage. Data governance helps to ensure the quality of data and to ensure that only correct and up-to-date data is used.
But data governance goes even further. It also plays an important role in protecting data and complying with data protection regulations. In many countries, there are strict regulations that govern the handling of personal data. Data governance helps to comply with these regulations and thus also to gain the trust of customers.
It is important that data governance is supported by the management level of the company. It is also important that there are clear responsibilities and processes established for handling data. An important part of data governance is also data management. This is about how data is collected, maintained and managed within the company. This includes, for example, defining data structures, creating data catalogues and developing data models. Another important aspect of data governance is data protection. This involves ensuring that only authorized persons have access to the data and that the data is stored securely. It also includes compliance with data protection regulations and the prevention of data leaks.
However, data governance is not only an internal matter, but also concerns the exchange of data with external partners and customers. Here it is important to make clear agreements and ensure that data is protected accordingly.
Conclusion: Data governance plays an important role in ensuring data quality and protecting data. It helps to define clear responsibilities and processes for handling data and to ensure that data protection regulations are complied with. Data governance concerns both the internal handling of data and the exchange of data with external partners and customers and is therefore an important success factor in the digital world.
