Data Impact Report 2019: data governance in a post-GDPR world

The importance of data governance has long been recognised by businesses with complex data management needs. But GDPR raised the stakes and forced organisations of all sizes to get to grips with their data. Our latest report examines the pressing need for robust data governance procedures and what this means for organisations today.

It’s hardly surprising that 57% of respondents in a Gartner survey cited “supporting data governance and data security” as one of the biggest challenges for their data management practice.

A cursory look at recent headlines further emphasises data governance as a hot topic:

“Microsoft acquires BlueTalon to bolster data governance offerings”

– Venturebeat

“COF breach shows the increasing importance of data governance”

– InvestorPlace

“Asset managers warned over poor data governance in ESG rush”

Ultimately, data is in every nook and cranny of your business. It’s stored in multiple platforms across disparate teams. Investing the time and resources into a robust data governance programme provides the foundations which enable you to utilise data to its full potential while protecting your organisation and empowering consumers.

“Looking after individuals’ personal data compliantly needs to be embedded as part of your company culture, it needs to be second nature for your people – just like great customer service should be.”

– Debbie McElhill, Associate at data protection consultancy Opt-4.
