Information is at the heart of all organizations, like blood flowing through its arteries and veins. However, all too often Information is not professionally managed with the rigour and discipline that it demands. Nonetheless the implications of poorly managed information can be catastrophic, from legal and other regulatory sanctions ultimately to business collapse.
Not only is Management, Stewardship and Governance of the Data Asset critically important for improved business efficiency, flexibility and competitive advantage, but now in the era of increasing Information based Regulatory and Compliance rules it is essential.
Every day we read about Data security and risk concerns, and these together with current and emerging regulations such as the Data Protection Act, BCBS239 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)mean that managing your Data Asset and effective Governance is no longer optional.
How can we manage our data and prepare for these regulations? What does Data Governance really mean, how practically do we make it work, and what are its implications? Does implementing Data Governance require a massive “big bang” exercise or is it possible to build data governance processes incrementally?
This training course will provide the rationale why Information Management is critical and provide practical methods and practices for addressing key Data Asset Management and Governance challenges and equip organisations to address the challenges that increased regulatory scrutiny brings.
This 3-day course will provide a solid foundation in the topic of Data asset management and Governance by describing its purpose, outcome, the typical organization structures required and the key business drivers for Data Governance.
It will highlight the Data Asset management and Governance implications of various regulatory acts with a focus on GDPR and illustrate how organisations can prepare for compliance.
Additionally, the practical roles responsibilities and activities involved in establishing successful Data Governance together with example Data Governance metrics for measuring progress of a Data Governance initiative will be highlighted. Importantly it will show how Data Asset management and Governance can be implemented in bite sized chunks vs being introduced in a top-down “big bang” manner.
The vital relationship between Data Governance and other core disciplines of Master Data Management, Data Modelling, Metadata Management& Data Quality management will be highlighted.
This 3-day course addresses all the core Data Asset management and Governance considerations and introduces the other associated Information Management disciplines.
