What is Data Governance?

Information is a strategic asset of the Institute and is critical to administration, planning, and decision-making. Effective and responsible use of information requires that data is secure, well documented, and accessible for use by authorized, trained personnel.

Data Governance is one facet of Georgia Tech’s overall Technology Governance framework. It is charged with guiding policy and business processes to ensure our data is governed, managed, secured, and compliant.
