Level:  Intermediate

Policies and standards are a foundational pillar of a successful Data Governance or Enterprise Information Management program. Policies and standards can support the establishment of a program, and can help to mature an existing program. Policies and standards provide programs with a way to build key partnerships, and to engage with both business and IT on topics that are important to the business and to executive sponsors. Polices and standards enrich a program, and are central to usage, control, standardization, and valuation of enterprise data.

Topics to be covered include:

  • How to get started
  • What policies and standards to develop
  • Key enterprise partnerships: what to develop, how to develop them, and why they are critical to success
  • Processes for development, maintenance, implementation, and approval of policies
  • Data Classification and Data Sensitivity
  • Selection, harmonization, and application of National and International Standards
  • The roles of Business, IT, Legal, Compliance, and Risk Management in policy work
  • Communication, Socialization, and Education
  • Metrics for Success
  • Policy & Standard examples
