Data Governance Australia

Australia’s leading industry association established to promote the responsible management and use of data to enable Australian businesses gain a competitive edge while reducing data-related risk.

As per the Data Availability and Use report of the Productivity Commission:  ‘Recommended reforms are aimed at moving from a system based on risk aversion and avoidance, to one based on transparency and confidence in data processes, treating data as an asset and not a threat. Significant change is needed for Australia’s open government agenda and the rights of consumers to data to catch up with achievements in competing economies’.

Data Governance Australia assists its members optimise their organisation’s data management, security and capability to gain a competitive edge while building trust amongst consumers that their data can deliver improved products and services while respecting their privacy and dignity.

We do this by providing our members with a range of benefits including:

Advocacy

Education programs

Industry standards and guidelines

DGA appeals to all organisations that hold and use data – and, in particular, Chief Data Officers, Chief Privacy Officers, Chief Risk Officers, General Counsel, Compliance Officers, Cybersecurity leaders and the like.  It is also equally important that Non-Executive Directors, CEOs and other C-suite executives are across data issues, as these increasingly impact every facet of business.
