Control the Data in Your Care
A by-product of today’s digital business, data is everywhere throughout your ecosystem. Discovering where that data resides is a crucial first step to knowing how to manage it.
But governance is more than a data awareness initiative.
Classifying data by type and format, identifying data owners, tracing data lineage to identify the risks it poses and setting standards for change management are vital efforts that help define the policies that will govern data for its life cycle – and ultimately drive data privacy and protection requirements across your environment.

Data Governance is a function that supports maturing organizations data management practices, leading to data that is:
Data Governance can mitigate programmatic and technical risks, aids in regulatory compliance, positions data as a strategic asset, and makes data operations more efficient.
Data governance varies from company to company; there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Our end-to-end approach is a systematic and iterative process to ensure a customized outcome that’s right for you. Led by our team of cybersecurity and data governance experts, our leading advisory services guide you in planning and developing an effective governance strategy that’s aligned with your business needs.
We then apply deep technical knowledge, best practices and certified skills to assist you in assessing, defining and operationalizing the policies and stewardship of your program that will govern your enterprise data throughout its life cycle.
Bring a customized data governance program into focus with Optiv.
Data governance is one of the three components in our overall data practice. Fundamentally linked with data privacy and data protection objectives, Optiv data governance offerings are integral in driving the responsible use, compliance and security of the data in your care.
Optiv provides both advisory and implementation capabilities across all of our governance offerings:
We use surveys, workshops, and leverage technology and our partner ecosystem to conduct both manual and automated data discovery to gain visibility into where and what kind of data resides in your environment. Ongoing discovery efforts identify any changes in your environment.
Our inventory and classification efforts prioritize the data that’s surfaced during discovery. Classification of data by type – such as sensitive or strategic, unstructured or structured – ensures that appropriate privacy and protection requirements are applied.
Our data lineage processes identify the sources of your data – as well as who uses it – in order to determine the potential risks associated with it. These efforts drive requirements for protecting that data to proactively mitigate risk from cradle to grave.
We identify the owners of your discovered data and help you plan how to operationalize their stewardship of the data with a focus on requirements for governance, privacy, and protection.
The constant generation and evolution of data requires the development of processes and policies that govern the handling of new data, changes to existing data, and requirements for compliant and safe destruction of data.
Controlling the data in your care doesn’t end with discovery. We can help.
