September 27, 2017
When GDPR takes effect in May 2018, data governance may become one of the most important elements of your data integration architecture.
Whether personal data comes from an online form, a business partner, an internal CRM or HR system, or your data lake, if it concerns an EU resident, it falls under GDPR. A strong data governance program ensures that you have the policies, standards, and controls in place to enforce compliance.
This white paper by data governance expert Sunil Soares provides a practical approach for compliance, including how to:
- Map the critical data elements across your datasets using metadata
- Foster accountability with data stewardship workflows
- Establish a data lake with native data quality to process consents and data subject rights
- Track and manage data with audit trails and data lineage
