The DHS Data Governance Council Charter establishes a framework for data governance within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), outlining roles, responsibilities, and procedures to ensure data integrity, quality, and accessibility. It is crucial for federal data leaders, including Chief Data Officers and data governance leaders, as it promotes coordinated data management, facilitates informed decision-making, and enhances mission effectiveness. By providing a structured approach to data governance, the Charter supports compliance with federal data policies, encourages data sharing and collaboration, and ensures the protection of sensitive information, thereby strengthening the overall data strategy of DHS.
