Welcome to the third week of the Data Ecosystem! With the amount of data that organizations are collecting, you might be wondering how they are able to ensure that it is accessible throughout the organization while maintaining security. In order to ensure that their data is useable and protected, organizations have to have strong data management practices throughout the data life cycle.

This week, you'll dive into a few of the key components of good data management including data quality management, data governance, and data architecture. By the end of this module, you'll have an understanding of the practices organizations employ to make sure their data can be trusted.
