Data governance refers to the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity, and security of an organization’s data assets.

It involves defining policies and procedures for data management, establishing data standards and best practices, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, and assigning responsibilities for data-related tasks.

The goal of data governance is to ensure that data is properly managed throughout its lifecycle, from creation to disposal, and that it is used effectively to support the organization’s goals and objectives.
