Data governance is “the definition, implementation, and management of policies, procedures, structures, roles and responsibilities that outline and enforce the rules of engagement, decision rights and accountabilities for the effective management of information assets.”

ISO 8000-2:2022
development and enforcement of policies related to the management of data (3.2.2)
Note 1 to entry: ISO/IEC 38500 specifies six principles of information (3.2.1) technology governance: responsibility (3.14.1); strategy; acquisition; performance; conformance; human behaviour. These principles also apply to data.

Simply put, as part of digital transformation, data governance is about information stewardship—essentially a watchdog role—rather than creating another layer of information management.
