Course Description
Organizations are rapidly adopting Data Governance solutions to address and overcome business issues and challenges associated with data quality.  Data Governance is defined as the organizing framework for aligning strategy, defining objectives, and establishing policies for enterprise information to achieve data quality standards.  An integral deliverable of a Data Governance initiative is to provide transparency of how data is structured based on defined rule sets in order to provide accurate real-time organizational intelligence.  
This session will cover key areas of Internal Audit involvement in the implementation of a Data Governance program and the strategies that Internal Audit can execute to assess the effectiveness of controls within the program.
