Data Governance Dialogue

Daugherty Business Solutions

Is your current data - * relevant to the business, * reliable, * sound, * useable, * accurate, * accessible, * meeting regulatory requirements like the European Union's GDPR and California's CCPA requirements and * secure? These are the topics and more are things that everyone should care about if you are dealing with data as a Developer, Architect, Engineer, Manager or CDO (Chief Data Officer). Pam will lead an interactive session to delve into these data governance issues, so be prepared to participate. About the speaker: Pam M is data focused.
