The six most commonly discussed data protection regulations are the European Union's GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the United States, Brazil’s LGPD, Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the Australian Data Privacy Law.

These regulations establish the who-what-when-where-why and how of data governance — they enforce a set of principles, practices and obligations that define how personal information must be managed, reported and maintained. 

Effective data governance ensures that data is accurate and up-to-date and is protected from misuse. Defining what data governance means to an organization is one of the good practices business leaders are advised to adopt in their journey towards compliance.
