- data governance (Chapter Two): Data governance involves processes and controls to ensure that information at the data level - raw alphanumeric characters that the organization is gathering and inputting - is true and accurate, and unique (not redundant). It involves data cleansing (or data scrubbing) to strip out corrupted, inaccurate, or extraneous data and de-duplication, to eliminate redundant occurrences of data.
