Gartner: Data Security Governance Must Balance Outcomes and Risks

“By 2026, 40% of organizations will use DSG to support business outcomes and data security investments, up from less than 15% today.”

Data Security Governance (DSG) provides a methodology for identifying and mitigating data risk across the organization – wherever it is stored, whoever uses it and however it is accessed. Moreover, DSG provides a framework for collaborating with key stakeholders across the business, helping translate data risk to business risk.

In their report, Gartner® outlines their five-stage cyclical model:

  1. Evaluate and Prioritize Business Risks
  2. Balance Data Security Posture
  3. Establish Security Policies
  4. Orchestrate Data Security Controls
  5. Assess the Data Risks

Learn the five steps so you can close the gaps in your data security posture. This model can help turn security into a business enabler and minimize business risk so you can maximize business outcomes.
