Information is the fuel of any modern-day business. Organizations succeed and falter based on the reliability, availability, and security of their data.
Strategically created enterprise-wide frameworks that define how information is controlled, accessed, and used are the most critical elements in a successful information management program. This framework is information governance.
Information governance is the set of policies, procedures, processes, roles, metrics, and controls implemented to manage information on all media in such a way that it supports an organization's immediate and future regulatory, legal, risk, and operational requirements. It treats information as a valuable business asset and ensures the effective and efficient use of information in enabling an organization to achieve its goals. Information governance is a holistic approach to managing corporate information.
The goal of a holistic approach to information governance is to make information assets available to those who need it, while streamlining management, reducing storage costs, and ensuring compliance. This, in turn, allows the company to reduce the legal risks associated with un-managed or inconsistently managed information and be more agile in response to a changing marketplace.
When a company fails to manage their information properly, it puts itself in jeopardy of violating compliance rules, damaging its brand equity, and paying hefty fines.
