At the same time, the expansion of data privacy regulations creates additional challenges.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “5 Data Governance Best Practices for 2021.”

Structure Data for Remote Work

“Following the lead of Silicon Valley tech giants, many organizations intend to keep workers remote, even after the pandemic. Consequently, they need to update data storage, access and transfer policies to increase data availability while reducing risk.”

Keep Shadow IT on the Radar

“The switch to remote work has resulted in an increase in shadow IT. This includes the many applications employees use without IT knowledge or sanction to get their jobs done. For instance, employees may use unauthorized messaging apps to share sensitive data with coworkers. Or they may store company documents in personal cloud storage.”

Boost Data Literacy

“Any list of data governance best practices this year should include data literacy. With an increasing emphasis on data-driven decision making, employees at all levels must be able to understand, evaluate and communicate data properly.”

Data Governance Best Practices Save Time and Money

By implementing solid data governance best practices, organizations can increase efficiency and security, even in a remote work environment. Incorporating basic security and data privacy frameworks will also improve compliance with privacy regulations. And focusing on data literacy will empower organizations to gain the most value out of their data.
