Data governance is a corporate activity. It is made necessary by the need to comply with such standards as Sarbanes Oxley, Basel III, HIPAA, and other regulations. Data governance needs to address primarily the granular data of the corporation. One of the activities of data governance is the repair of data when it is found to be broken.
