Aligning Data Governance Initiatives with Business Objectives

Speakers: Paige Bartley, Senior Analyst, Data and Enterprise Intelligence, Ovum + Cameron Tovey, Head of Information Security, Confluent

There’s a prevailing enterprise perception that compliance with data protection regulations and standards, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU, Payment Card Industry (PCI), International Standards Organization (ISO) and many others is a burden: limiting the leverage of data. However, the core requirement of compliance—better control of data—has multiple downstream benefits. When compliance objectives are aligned with existing business objectives, the business can experience net gain.

For many organizations that want to adopt streaming data, strengthening their governance protocol is a key requirement. While this certainly poses a challenge for data protection regulations and standards, it also limits the potential of data in broader enterprise initiatives that look to maximize the value of information.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how data compliance can be a facilitator of existing business objectives rather than a burden
  • Find out how to align existing business initiatives with compliance initiatives for maximum business benefit
  • Learn about the place of streaming data and data-in-motion in the compliance effort

  • Discover your options for improving governance
