Data Governance in Information Technology refers to the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity, and security of the data employed in an organization. It involves a set of processes, policies, standards, and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information in enabling an organization to achieve its goals. This includes the processes that ensure data is consistent, trustworthy, and doesn’t get misused.

Data Governance is a subset of Information Governance. Data Governance focuses specifically on the management of data – its integrity, security, and availability within an organization. Information Governance, on the other hand, is a broader term that encompasses all types of information, including both electronic and physical records. It includes the strategies, policies, and procedures to manage and use information effectively, addressing compliance, risk management, and the strategic management of information.

The five goals of Information Security Governance are:

    • Strategic Alignment: Aligning information security with business strategy to support organizational objectives.
    • Risk Management: Identifying and managing risks to ensure they are at an acceptable level.
    • Resource Management: Efficiently managing resources to support information security.
    • Performance Measurement: Measuring, monitoring, and reporting information security governance to ensure business objectives are met.
    • Value Delivery: Ensuring that information security delivers value to the business.

Information Security Governance is the system by which an organization directs and controls information security. It involves leadership, organizational structures, and processes that safeguard the organization’s information. It ensures that the security strategies are aligned with business objectives and consistent with regulations.

Information Governance in Healthcare refers to the organization and control of all healthcare data, from patient records to treatment protocols. It ensures that all data is accurate, accessible, protected, and used in compliance with regulations such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). It is crucial for protecting patient privacy and ensuring high-quality patient care.

Information Governance is the framework for handling information in a secure, efficient, and compliant manner. It encompasses policies, processes, and technologies that manage and protect information assets across an organization. Information Governance aims to balance the use and security of information, ensuring that it can be accessed and used effectively while also protecting it from unauthorized access or breaches.
