More and more companies in financial services are coming to terms with the fact that they need to have a data stewardship function in order to be effective in collecting metadata (including definitions, derivations, and data quality rules), MDM, and data quality. A lot has been said and spoken about why stewardship is important, but HOW do you do it and be effective with limited resources (in the “real world”)? This presentation details how a to set up a data stewardship in the financial sector,  how to run it, the details of managing the stewardship committee, recruiting help from IT for technical stewards, what the duties of the data stewards are, and what decisions they have to make.

T3: Successful Data Governance for Data Lakes in Finance  
Malcolm Chisholm, Chief Innovator Officer, First San Francisco Partners


Data Lakes are becoming increasingly common in financial services companies, and they present a new level of challenges for Data Governance. Data Governance is essential for the success of a Data Lake, but must overcome a number of challenges. For instance, financial services companies have to a wide diversity of data that must be cataloged within the Data Lake, and must protect private and confidential data. This tutorial describes the tasks that a Data Governance function must perform for a Data Lake in finance, and the capabilities that Data Governance must develop to the requisite level of maturity. Particular attention is paid to Data Acquisition of financial data, Data Preparation (“Wrangling”) and the needs of analytical models. The relationships that Data Governance must establish with a wide range of units are described including relationships with Legal, Procurement, Risk, Compliance, Privacy, IT Security, Data Scientists, Data Architecture, and more. Overall, Data Lakes in financial institutions are driving Data Governance to play a coordinating and harmonizing role, which can be considered as a new way of working for Data Governance.

Attendees will learn:

  • The fundamental architecture of a Data Lake in a financial institution, and the special data management needs it has that Data Governance must address
  • The tasks that Data Governance must perform to ensure a Data Lake is successful
  • How to develop the capabilities that Data Governance needs for its enhanced role in financial Data Lakes
  • How to deal with the many different functions that are involved in the Data Lake, and how Data Governance plays a leading role in ensuring the success of the Data Lake for financial services

Semantic Data Governance for Regulatory Compliance
Ralph Hodgson, CTO, TopQuadrant

Across industry sectors, understanding, assessing and reporting for regulatory compliance is both a priority and a challenge for many organizations. Data-related laws, such as HIPAA, BASEL and GDPR, require an understanding of the sources, flows and destinations of data.

Based on W3C semantic standards, TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance (TopBraid EDG) provides a solution that uses and confirms the power of semantics to map data landscapes. Based on cases of use from the financial sector we will show how to consolidate, organize and manage metadata and relationships for compliance assessment.

Using GDPR compliance for illustration, we will demonstrate how TopBraid EDG addresses the problems in regulatory compliance by using models (standards-based ontologies) to:

  • manage the articles and structure of compliance requirements
  • provide a reasoning foundation for interpreting the meanings of regulations on data-in-context
  • describe data and how it flows through software executables in the business environment.

Key capabilities of the solution include: query and visualization to navigate data dependencies; and rules on the data to infer what regulatory obligations are applicable. We will report on a data lineage methodology and best practices inspired by customer projects.

T4: Governance Artifacts for Financial Organizations
Robert S. Seiner, President/Publisher, KIK Consulting/TDAN.com

When building a Data Governance program for a financial organization, there are two different ways to collect and use the metadata that moves the organization toward formalized accountability. Organizations can purchase or use software tools that are currently available on the market or they can build tools internally specific to their programs requirements. It is less expensive to start by building your own tools.

In this session with Bob Seiner, he will share several governance artifacts (tools that you can develop yourself) that are specifically focused on the needs of a financial organization. These artifacts can be used to enact stewards, engage them in governed processes, and communicate and enforce compliance and privacy rules. Attend this session and you will walk away with tangible tools to move your data governance program forward.

In this session, Bob will share:

  • The advantage of building your own tools first
  • Requirements for tools you can build yourself
  • Several key artifacts to execute authority over data
  • How to use the tools to benefit your organization
  • How to build artifacts that are easy to explain and use

T5: Successfully Meeting the Challenge of the New Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Malcolm Chisholm, Chief Innovation Officer, First San Francisco Partners

A sweeping, new privacy regulation arrives May 25, 2018. Will you be ready for it?  The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) impacts all companies that do business in the EU, including many financial services companies domiciled in the US. GDPR replaces the previous Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC), and extends the protections for individuals’ personal data.  Significant fines may be levied for noncompliance. This tutorial describes the steps an organization affected by GDPR must take in the time remaining to assure compliance.   These steps require the coordination of multiple enterprise capabilities such as Information Security, Internal Audit, Privacy, and Legal. The role of Data Governance in coordinating the required activities is described.

Attendees to the tutorial will be provided with insight and approaches for:

  • Understanding where GDPR fits into the global data privacy and data protection landscape, what the scope of GDPR is, and why GDPR is so important
  • Adopting a GDPR readiness assessment process to help identify potential gaps and a roadmap to address those gaps
  • How Data Governance works to coordinate the response to GDPR, and how this may be extensive to global data privacy and data protection regulations in general
  • Developing a Data Governance program framework that embeds data privacy and data protection processes and tools
