What is web & digital governance?

Web governance, sometimes referred to as digital governance, is defined as the process of maintaining and managing an online presence in an organized way. The idea is to uphold your website to certain standards, whether that’s your own organization’s standards or following regulations or compliance standards, such as web accessibility standards. It all relates to providing the best user experience possible for your website visitors by ensuring quality, consistency, accessibility, searchability, and more.
