Establishing a Strong Data Governance and Data Stewardship Framework for Distributed Management of Data Abuse and Data Spills

In this talk, Professor Chang will introduce a Data Governance Model and Data Stewardship framework including policy, process, function and services. She then introduces federated and centralised data management methods and the emerging approach to distributed control of data abuse and data spills. This is followed by the illustration of plan, manage and execution of data security, and the discussion on the importance of providing trusted, credible, traceable and accurate information at the point of need is critical for enterprise wide business intelligence and decision making.
