Data discovery is the first step in any data governance program. Next comes what actions should ultimately be taken with that digital information to ensure it’s appropriately protected and managed. OneTrust can automate enforcement actions like retention, deletion, movement, and redaction across your data stores, and integrate with existing data catalogs, security, and governance tools like ServiceNow, Jira, Microsoft Purview, Alation, Collibra, and more than 500 others.

See the results of your data governance strategy by reviewing trends in data hygiene, like where sensitive data has been found, and looking at policy violations to identify areas of program improvement. Prove the effectiveness of your data governance initiatives with dashboards, metrics, and reports.

FAQs

Data governance provides the guidelines for everyone in an organization to collect, use, manage, protect, retain, and delete information in a secure and sanctioned way. It can help inform decisions around where data should be stored, who has access to it, what can be done with it, and how to control it throughout its lifecycle. Done well, data governance can improve data security, optimize storage cost, extract value from the data, and ultimately build customer trust.

Alignment with government and industry regulations, appropriate security controls, compliance with written data policies pertaining to trust, use, retention, and disposal, and the ability to independently and objectively verify that the policies of a program are being followed.
