Data Governance: Using Field Security

The key to reporting and extracting insights from data is being able to trust the data and its dissemination. It boils down to the essential aspects of Data Governance – the ability to access and consume data reliably while meeting the competing demands between IT security and business users. Good Data Governance answers questions like, ‘How can I trust the data?’, ‘How can I have traceability of key business decisions?’, ‘How do I keep my data from getting unwieldy and uncontrollable?’, and ‘How can I ensure that only authorized persons can see the data or parts of it?’.
