Data Governance, Privacy and Protection


Make Sure You Have All the Data Dimensions Covered To Truly Address Data Security

Data is Your Most Valuable Asset

Data is the cornerstone of all companies today — it is how we operate, make decisions, gain insights, and create value. Data is now the most valuable asset on the balance sheet, growing at an astounding rate. It also carries an inordinate amount of risk if not proactively managed.


Imagine a world where all data is governed, all privacy concerns are addressed and protecting and managing data throughout its lifecycle is a given. You’re probably part of the way there, but together we can move toward a better future state, regardless of your starting place. In the end, having all three interwoven domains of data governance, privacy and protection working together will enable you to have a rock-solid foundation to truly secure the data that matters.

Three Dimensions: The Essential Foundations to Enable Data Security

Data Control. Data Respect. Data Protect.


The responsibility for data security spans across organizations. But, given all the facets – including governance, privacy and sensitive data protection, it’s no longer just a security group issue. From the Chief Privacy Officer to the CISO to the Chief Data Officer, organizations understand that data poses complex business issues and requires concerted efforts to address data security across the board – no matter where it lives. Data security now must start with a solid program around governance, privacy and protection. It’s a shared responsibility.


At Optiv, we are singularly focused on solving data governance, privacy and protection challenges. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the role or individual leadership functions. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have in-depth understanding of the full scope of the domain realms. If you need help, we have the answers.
