Data governance is about the convergence of data quality, data management, data policies, business process management, and risk management around the handling of data within an organization. Data governance can create great value for the entire organization as it generates more transparency, availability, and security in the decision-making process.

You'll learn how to structure your data in a way that makes sense for your business, how to create security protocols, and how to make the best use of your data resources. In the program, you will focus on data governance and its importance in an organization, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. You will gain insight into the role of data security, understand the threats and opportunities, and learn to protect data in the most effective way.
