New or Existing Role: New
· Data Management jobs develop and execute data initiatives to improve the HSBC data environment and maximising the value of data assets. They may be located in a Data Management unit and may have reports who have responsibilities in the areas of data policy, data governance or data integrity.
· The key tasks performed by Data Management jobs will include some or all of the following:
· Ensure data governance in place meets regulatory needs as well as that for HSBC
· Ensure that business intelligence capabilities are developed and maintained to allow HSBC to maximise the benefit of data assets
· Develop, manage and maintain data standards, policies and methodologies
· Ensure data management practices in HSBC help support business decision making
Impact on Business
· The Global Head of Data Usage & Flow directs the development, implementation and delivery of a Trusted Source Framework (TSF). The TSF is a methodology designed to support the capture and maintenance of what applications (containers) acquire and maintain data and information across the GBM application portfolio. A comprehensive and sustainable record of data provenance is required to support growing regulatory requirements, e.g. BCBS239. Also, an increase in demand for authoritative data supporting Big Data use cases, including AI and Machine Learning is driving the need for a full audit trail, detailing where, how and when data is transformed and by who, thus ensuring consistency and full knowledge of the base data being used to avoid bias and demonstrated ethical use of data.
· The Data Usage & Flow governance model combined with the Information Asset Registry is designed in partnership with CCO, Reg Compliance, Legal Data Privacy and Information Security Risk, and provides the centralised metadata architecture supporting the CDO and is a critical dependency on GBM delivering its Big Data Strategy.
· The Information Asset Registry is essential component of an evolving and optimized data management practice, providing a register of controls to enforce compliant data usage; as such, it is a risk management necessity for the GBM CDO.
· The Global Head of Data Usage & Flow works in partnership with the Global Data Control Owners and System Owners to certify sources of data and map data transformations as the data traverses the application landscape. Transparency and auditability of data provenance is the primary objective and requires methods, techniques and tooling to be developed in conjunction with the solution development community to ensure timely update of related meta-data artefacts representing the TSF collateral.
· The establishment of a TSF Roadmap articulating the mid to long term objectives and deliverables of the pillar, with required budgetary and resources is essential to operation of this pillar. Successful operation of the pillar relies on establishing clear working methods and development of training materials for System Owners, GCDOs and IT Solution Delivery resources as the producers of TSF metadata descriptions. A clear communication plan to raise awareness of the TSF content and it importance is also necessary to promote adoption and use of high quality and trusted data.
· The on-going ability of Data Science teams to create innovative business insight and value is predicated on the ability to use data free to support decision making and to effect change across GBM. The premise on which data is shared and used, irrespective of controlling jurisdiction, is based on the core principles of privacy by design and default, data minimisation, legitimate purposes, limitations on storage, accuracy and integrity. The Data Usage & Flow pillar provides the foundational metadata that is needed to demonstrate compliance with these principles, without which there is increasing risk and complexity in the data landscape.
· In addition to supporting innovative data insight, the pillar enables;
· Increased confidence in data due to clear provenance and context
· Enables broader spectrum of data quality indicators
· Increases the usability of data and information through Privacy-Enhancement Techniques to data that has been mapped
· Protects data through the ability to apply data access decisionining and enforcement driven by metadata
