Every week brings news of an organisation that has distributed data that shouldn't have been shared, or has lost out to a competitor who is using data to drive business in an innovative way. Data is fundamentally changing the nature of businesses and organisations, and the mechanisms for delivering products and services. This book is a practical guide to developing strategy and policy for data governance, in line with the developing ISO 38505 governance of data standards and best practice frameworks. It will assist an organisation wanting to become more of a data driven business by explaining how to assess the value, risks and constraints associated with collecting, using and distributing data.
