In today's "knowledge economy," government data is a lucrative target for cybercriminals. A strong data governance program that complements data security is of paramount importance. There is so much for government CIOs to consider when it comes to protecting citizen data and sensitive government information. To adequately protect that data, it's important to identify the data, establish its value and risk level, and know where it is stored, where it goes, how it is used, and who uses it. Armed with this information, government agencies can structure an effective, data governance program with policies and procedures that will help them meet compliance requirements and better serve their constituencies without adding cost or complexity.
