Data Governance Act, an essential pillar of Europe's data strategy
The Data Governance Act (DGA) provides a framework to encourage trust in voluntary data sharing to benefit businesses and citizens. The DGA is a cross-sector instrument that aims to open up government data more widely for reuse, encourage data sharing between companies and promote the use of data for altruistic purposes. A governance model within DGA is the provision of data mediation services. These services enable the sharing or joint use of data by companies.
Our company is one of the first to be ready to supply data mediation services as a neutral party. As a public company, we have a legal mandate to process personal and sensitive corporate data smartly and securely, while allowing those who share their data to retain full control and transparency, warranted by athumi's governance.
