About this paper
There's a growing recognition that data is not just a technology issue, but a critical corporate asset that must be driven by the needs of the business. As such, it has become a key topic for discussion among both the executive and non-executive board, and it plays a key role in effective enterprise risk management. This white paper discusses how, by asking the right questions at the right time, understanding the strengths and weaknesses of their institutions' data, and helping to prioritize investments and initiatives, boards can play a vital role in raising the quality of data and, by extension, their own decision making.
