Data Governance Trends: Predictions, pitfalls, and technologies for the future of digital work

The inaugural Data Governance Trends Report is based on survey results from 400 CIOs and IT leaders across industries, highlighting challenges associated with the data type most greatly affected by remote working scenarios: unstructured data. (Unstructured data includes all the information stored in files like Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents, as well as images, video and more.) Key findings show how the COVID-19 pandemic has forced CIOs to reimagine data governance plans in the context of remote-first (and remote-only) working conditions. It reveals new and emerging security threats associated with the work-from-everywhere paradigm, and digs into the strategies companies have adopted (and plan to adopt) to keep up.
