Execution of Data Accountability
Michael McKenzie, Data Steward, Fannie Mae
Sarah Truman, Director Risk Analytics, Fannie Mae
Fannie Mae's centralized stewardship group ensures localized business groups own, define, approve, and monitor data, in accordance with the data management policy, with increasing responsibility and accountability. Centralized stewardship provides direction and engagement with business groups on their responsibilities, without providing specific instructions on execution. Each business group executes a fit for purpose framework enabling them to establish programs and needs to support these data management demands. The Enterprise Risk Management group is one of the many internal groups establishing a program to meet their data needs. This group monitors risks and creates safeguards to ensure a safe, sound, and profitable organization and relies on data from throughout the enterprise. This unique organization has effective data management practices and resources in place to provide the necessary oversight and expertise to manage their accountability.

This presentation demonstrates the dynamic working relationship between a centralized and local data stewardship program to govern and manage data. It illustrates how a business group interrupts the accountability and establishes their organization to staff resources, prioritize, and execute needs. It also will demonstrate how business utilizes the framework to collaborate with and across the other business working groups to communicate, share information and ideas, and lessons learned.

GDPR Implementation at Dun & Bradstreet - A Deep Dive
Kevin Shannon, Global Head Enterprise Data Governance, Dun and Bradstreet

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data privacy regulation arising out of the European Union (EU).  The GDPR was introduced by the EU to modernize and standardize the protection of personal data for all European residents.  The regulation applies to all EU residents regardless of where their data is stored and/or processed globally.  The GDPR also covers all personal data processed and/or stored within EU borders regardless of a data subject’s residency.  This wide reaching regulation will impact a vast number of global enterprises.

Dun & Bradstreet began addressing the GDPR in April 2016 when the regulation was finalized and they are well underway toward completing their internal program in time for the May 2018 deadline.

In this presentation, we will cover the following topics:

  • Dun & Bradstreet is a global B2B data provider.  Discuss GDPR in the context of global B2B use cases.
  • Take a deep dive into Dun & Bradstreet’s approach to readying for the GDPR.  Focus on the accelerators.
  • Discuss how Dun & Bradstreet is using agile methodologies to deliver on their GDPR solution, even in the context GDPR’s fixed scope and deadlines.
  • Learn how Dun & Bradstreet has deployed a relatively small core team to manage this large scale, global program.  Discuss the key players and roles.

The 2017 BCBS 239 Assessment is Out
What can we learn to ensure Satisfactory Compliance

Lowell Fryman, Practice Principal, Collibra
Simon Hankinson, Financial Services Market Lead, Collibra

The BCBS committee assessment published in March 2017 states “The latest assessments by supervisors show that banks’ level of compliance is unsatisfactory and the overall implementation progress remains a source of concern to supervisors. In view of the unsatisfactory assessment results, banks are urged to step up efforts to comply with the Principles. Supervisors are expected to monitor progress and call on banks to address observed weaknesses.” Given that the assessment also states that only 1 bank has fully complied with the BCBS 239 Principles, we all have a lot of work ahead of us to comply. Data Governance processes, resources and technology are critical to meet the supervisor’s expectations for satisfactory achievement of the BCBS 239 Principles.

This session will provide solutions and answers to:

  • What actions will your Data Governance, CDO, and Risk organizations be expected to take given the apparent “unsatisfactory results”?

  • What are the alignment activities needed to meet the guidelines for Data Governance/Infrastructure, Data Aggregation, and Risk reporting?
  • What do you need to achieve in order to change the opinion of the supervisors and not be considered as “unsatisfactory”?
  • What are the basic Data Governance processes and outcomes called for in the regulations that can be achieved in the next 3 months, and how do we create a program for iterative success (the toolkit)?

We will provide advanced best practices and solutions to the challenges faced by the G-SIB and D-SIB level financial and investment firms.

Getting the Big Picture in Data Governance at JPMC – Linked Data Brings it all into Focus
Gregor Wobbe, VP, J.P. Morgan Chase

In this presentation we showcase how JPMC incorporates linked data technologies to improve data governance and data management across a portfolio that includes thousands of applications. With the myriad of data-related laws (and acronyms), like HIPAA, BASEL and GDPR, there is a need to understand the sources, flows and destinations of data to efficiently manage the data life cycle.

We leverage linked data to:

  • Spend less time searching for data and more time using it to gain insight
  • Provide management with situational awareness to timely manage a complex and rapidly evolving application landscape
  • Automate the classification of data elements along privacy, data risk, data sensitivity dimensions
  • Reduce the cost of data redundancy and hoarding
  • Provide transparency, rationale and evidence of adherence to data centric strategy, policy and regulatory expectations
