Key Focus Areas of Data Governance

Published: 30 January 2018

Data governance is defined as the structured process a business or organisation follows to ensure the quality and longevity – and therefore usefulness - of data throughout its lifecycle; including the establishment of policies and continuous monitoring of their proper implementation by the members of a governing body determined by an organisation.

In providing data governance that encompasses all data assets across an organisation, TD Global ensures both a unified view of information and a way to manage irregularities or data quality issues before or as they arise.


Key focus areas of data governance are:



Ensuring that critical data is available at the right time to the right person, in a standardised and reliable form for improved efficiency and productivity in an organisation



Data management includes collating, revising and standardising data to maintain accurate, consistent and high-quality data that is fit for use



Data governance frameworks address regulatory mandates, audit issues and data quality, ensuring the integrity and value of your data



As network infrastructure threats continue to evolve, threat management security solutions are a key part of data management, alerting personnel to potential and actual threats and mitigating damage

In short, data governance is the oversight aspect of enterprise information management and comprises people, processes and technology. Outsourcing data governance to specialist companies like tdglobal enables organisations to rest assured that their data is clean, meets legal standards and is accessible and secure.
