Data is one of the most powerful tools modern businesses have at their disposal. Whether created by an organization, its customers, or a third party, data can lead to meaningful insights that positively inform and shift business decisions when leveraged correctly. The opposite also holds true: data can expose an organization to significant liabilities when leveraged incorrectly.

That’s why all organizations need to have clear data governance policies and protocols in place. While all employees should understand those policies, it’s especially important for managers to know the rules and monitor their team’s activity for compliance.

This resource is an overview of data governance and its crucial role in modern organizations.
