RANSOMWARE SERIES: The Path Less Traveled and Tips of the Trade

The Path Less Traveled: knowing who exactly owns the data and acting responsibly.

When a business does not take ownership of its data, IT and cyber security end up having to pick up the tab on it. This is not a proper way for businesses to own data. They must have some form of governance so that IT and cyber know what they consider important and why, how they curate it and keep it healthy, and how they maintain the data’s quality. Business repositories then get formed, consisting of -the data catalogs, business glossaries, and metadata enrichment. These business repositories and quality tests may be executed by IT individuals, but they’re mainly business-driven operations and functions. When we have that ownership properly placed on the business, data governance propels into its maximum action, and this is when we get to see it excel. The business enterprise, project domains, and technical stores will know at any point in time how the data should be treated, for which purpose, and the extent of its health.
