This is GLB Business Department Lakehouse Department Chen (Chen). I would like to introduce a session called "Multicloud Data Governance on the Databricks Lakehouse" based on a report by Mr. Gibo, who is participating in the local Data + AI SUMMIT 2023 (DAIS).
Speakers Ioannis Papadopoulos and Volker Tjaden will focus on data governance, explaining aspects such as privacy and security. We target engineers who are interested in data governance, people in charge of companies managing data in a multi-cloud environment, and people in companies aiming to become data-driven organizations.
Fundamentals of data governance
The definition of data governance and concepts such as privacy, security, compliance, and data quality assurance are summarized in the overview below.
Data governance is the establishment and execution of policies and rules for the proper management and use of data by companies. Data governance includes the following elements:
- Privacy: Protection and appropriate handling of personal information
- Security: Measures to prevent unauthorized access or leakage of data
- Compliance: data management in accordance with laws and regulations
- Data Quality Assurance: Efforts to Maintain Data Accuracy and Consistency
The problem that data governance seeks to solve is whether data is properly managed and used. Particular emphasis is placed on determining who has access. This is expected to prevent unauthorized use and leakage of data and reduce corporate risks.
Enabling multi-cloud data governance
Databricks Lakehouse provides features for achieving data governance in multi-cloud environments. This allows enterprises to centrally manage data across different cloud providers for proper governance.
Data governance challenges in a multi-cloud environment
Data governance challenges in a multi-cloud environment include:
- Ensuring data consistency across different cloud providers
- Dealing with differences in security and privacy policies between cloud providers
