Data Governance and semantics

Approaches and practices for efficient data management

Organizations are dealing with growing pools of data, data processing pipelines and associated risks originating from data breaches, unauthorized access and poor data quality. The complex matrix of data protection and privacy regulations businesses need to comply with across geographies have been the driver for more streamlined methods to data governance. The approaches have moved from merely checking the box on compliance audits to design approaches, automated tests and tooling as well as integrated principles and procedures.

The project aims to help the audience get acquainted with the current approaches and practices for managing data. And through that reduce the operational risks to business. Bringing together a mix of experts across sectors and blending tools, frameworks, principles and design - the project will enable a cross section of teams within the organizations to address the blind spots and view data governance as a complete package instead of a siloed approach of specific processes and requirements in policy.
