SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK -- Application Security, Inc., a leading provider of database security solutions for the enterprise, today announced it has joined the Data Governance Council. The group, which was formed by IBM in 2005 along with dozens of leading corporations, institutions and technology solution providers, is a global effort to develop a "blueprint" of common solutions to challenges that apply to security, privacy, trust and corporate compliance issues.
Data Governance is the process by which companies govern appropriate access to their critical data by measuring operational risk and controlling security exposures. The Data Governance Council is working to redefine the management of data governance policy, the impact of policy on business processes and practices, and the enforcement of policy in IT infrastructure, information management and organizational behavior. Members of the Council are collaborating on ways to address these issues using IBM and business partner solutions and concepts.
