BOSTON and HERTZLIA, Israel -- Continuity Software, a leading provider of Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) solutions, today announced it has joined the IBM 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 for 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.
We are delighted to add Continuity Software to our roster of industry leading technology solutions providers, each of whom have demonstrated an impressive level of dedication to solving customer data governance challenges, said Steven Adler, program director, IBM Data Governance Solutions. As organizations increasingly recognize the value of their data, responsible data governance is remaining a top priority for enterprises and companies of all sizes.
