Data Governance Interview with James Shaw

Nicola Askham interviewed James Shaw, Data Governance, Protection and Management Professional for his advice to others transitioning into Data Governance.

Learning the basics of data through a Data Analysis role is a regular route for Data Governance professionals, and is a great basis to learn the basics of Data, before you try and control and manage it. Despite this, leaning into the role of Data Governance made perfect sense for James, seeing this as “essential” to maintaining control over entire organisations. DG provides a method to maintain a company in the way there are departments suited to control people and systems.

“The governance and management of Data is not just desirable but essential to maintain control and discipline over any organisation.”
