Is there such a thing as "data culture," or is this just another buzzword?

Absolutely.  But it needs to be supported and  nurtured with time and resources.   You need a open collaborative data platform with a continuous effort made on outreach, training and useful content.

I would definitely say yes. It has two folds, one from the data management and governance perspective. Is the company doing the right things with data?
Another from the data users perspective. Everyone can get benefitted from data, for that matter. In general, do employees and management in the organization is data driven? Do they ask right questions before taking any decisions?

Absolutely there is a thing as "data culture." We all love to have fancy business analytics, reporting, and claim to manage by the numbers. But in reality most organisations are leading by experience, heuristics, power/politics, and momentum. Taking decisions on the basis of numbers is a culture shift that most organizations have not yet put in to play, although there are notable exceptions. Also related to data culture is the huge imbalance in deductive vs inductive analysis skills. And in a dynamic and ambiguous complex world, inductive analysis skills (which can be taught) enrich the culture of data in an organisation and permit people to explore uncertainties and analyse trends for real innovation. Patterns and hypothesis emerge from non-homogeneous and cross-domain data exploration with application of inductive analysis technique. Here again, the skills must be taught, but the culture must support a non-deductive approach.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.31%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.52%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
