  • accountability (p.17): An organization must identify parties which are ultimately responsible for data and content assets. (†1194)
  • data governance (p.11): "Data governance is the organization and implementation of policies, procedures, structure, roles, and responsibilities which outline and enforce rules of engagement, decision rights, and accountabilities for the effective management of information assets." Regardless of style of definition, the bottom line is that data governance is the use of authority combined with policy to ensure the proper management of information assets. (†1198)
  • data governance (p.11): Data governance is NOT a function performed by those who manage information. This means there must always be a separation of duties between those who manage and those who govern . . . . This is a key concept that business people understand, and IT staff often experience as a problem. For example, in business there are auditors and managers. Managers control, monitor, and ensure work gets done and rules and standards are adhered to. Auditors verify compliance to standards, and define and implement new controls and standards as required. This is exactly the same protocol that is required by data governance. The [data governance] “area” identifies required controls, policies, and processes, and develops rules. Information managers (essentially everyone else) adhere to the rules. (†1199)
  • data governance (p.174): Data governance is a business program - [data governance] is never an IT program. It exists to provide the roles, rules, and controls for the data assets. It must be applied across the board to everyone in the organization. (†1200)
  • information asset (p.20): Information Asset Management describes a business-based approach to ensure that data, information, and content are all treated as assets in the true business and accounting sense - avoiding increased risk and cost due to data and content misuse, poor handling, or exposure to regulatory scrutiny. (†1196)
  • information management (p.13): Information management is the same as inventory management - the actual touching, moving, tracking, and managing activities of the assets. (†1197)
  • liability (p.17): The risks in information means there is a financial liability inherent in all data or content that is based on regulatory and ethical misuse or mismanagement. (†1195)
  • risk (p.17): There is risk associated with data and content. This risk must be formally recognized, either as a liability or through incurring costs to manage and reduce the inherent risk. (†1193)
