Information Governance

Information as a Key Business Asset

Information governance is no longer a luxury, but a necessity in our data-driven world. It's a strategic approach to managing and utilizing information that can help your organization achieve its objectives, meet legal requirements, and mitigate risk. But what does it involve? And how can you implement it effectively in your organization? 

What is Information Governance?

Information governance is a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to managing corporate information by implementing processes, roles, controls, and metrics. It ensures the appropriate behaviour in the creation, use, archiving, and deletion of information. It's about gaining control over information to support business outcomes, reduce costs, and reduce the risks associated with information mismanagement.
