As news breaks on increased cybersecurity threats, CIO leaders often find themselves filling in the gaps and dealing with the most pressing issues regarding data and the possibility of a breach. As noted in a recent article by Inside Higher Ed1, cybersecurity company BlueVoyant published research about the increase in attacks on higher education institutions from 2019 to 2020. As all IT leaders know, the risks continue to increase.
While outside threats continue to catch the headlines, an introspective look into an institution’s data governance strategy can often reveal risks that are hidden in plain sight. As CIO’s and their teams continue to increase their responsibilities across campus, many find themselves working in conjunction with a CISO or security staff to formulate a plan to mitigate risk. Often, that plan begins with best practices in data governance.
No matter where the institution is in the data governance ecosystem, the strategies for building and maintaining sound data governance involve careful planning across many tactical areas. Many times, technology leaders find themselves looking for tools that can help them secure leadership buy-in, establish decision-making power, and guide disciplined execution.
