This webinar will discuss how an assurance model of trusted computing that considers all risks to data, including privacy, security, availability, integrity, safety, compliance and quality - delivers maximum long - term positive impact to the success of your organization.

Why Should You Attend:

Understanding and establishing data governance is a critical step to managing any Information Technology project; it’s even more important to establish sound governance across the entire enterprise and with business partners. The key outcome is that end users can trust the data and use it with confidence for their purposes, that there is a single, trusted source of truth for any data used across the enterprise. Without high quality consistent use of data, it is not possible to derive value from it. Analytics, decision support and other specific applications depending on data are all at risk if the data is not subject to best governance practices.

Experience from a range of industries (including Healthcare) shows that other negative impacts include customer dissatisfaction, increased operational cost, less effective decision-making and a reduced ability to make and execute effective strategy. Poor data quality hurts employee morale, breeds organizational mistrust, and makes it more difficult to align the enterprise.

In the healthcare domain, data governance is imperative because of the unique characteristics of health data, because poor data quality causes an immediate safety issue. Failure to attend to safety issues places organizations at risk of litigation.

Recent trends include increased regulations such as GPDR which allows for fines of up to $22 million or four percent of the offender’s worldwide turnover, whichever is the higher, for misuse of data relating to European citizens.

The goal of data governance is to ensure the quality, availability, integrity, security, and usability of data within and across an entire organization. This session will outline in detail the steps that need to be taken to ensure both project and long - term enterprise success by implementing strong data governance measures.
