The Data Governance Professional Organization (DGPO) is the only non-profit professional organization dedicated entirely to data governance. Since the founding of the group in 2011, the DGPO has grown to 4,000 list members and nearly 1,000 members representing 16 countries.

One of the many questions the DGPO receives from members is “What are data governance best practices?” Based on this the DGPO has developed some industry data governance best practices. Join us and learn about top DG Best Practices from successful practitioners.

Topics include best practices for:

  • Getting started in data governance and stewardship
