Data Stewards

Data stewards are appointed by executive sponsors to implement established data policies and general administrative data security policies for their functional areas. They are responsible for safeguarding the data from unauthorized access and abuse through established security and authorization procedures and educational programs.

They authorize the use of data within their functional areas and monitor this use to verify appropriate data access. Stewards support access by providing appropriate documentation and training to support University data users. Data stewards, having served informally at the institution, will be identified and serve on existing change management committees and the campus information security committee as appropriate.
