Many talk about the unlimited opportunities of data and information assets. But, bad data and information can also severely hurt your business and create considerable risk. Managing risk is a new angle to selling data quality projects to upper managers who do not want to take the time to learn about the value of data quality.
Total Information Risk Management provides you with a step by step process to identify, quantify and mitigate the risks arising from poor data and information assets. It is based on novel research from the Distributed Information and Automation Laboratory at the University of Cambridge and has been proven to be successful across many different industries.
In particular, this book shows data managers and IT professionals how to:
