Information is both the lifeblood and the bane of any business, no matter its size, industry or location. Enterprises collect and analyze data from a myriad of internal and external sources to improve business efficiencies and decision-making processes.
Yet these volumes of data grow larger and are more difficult to manage and control every year -- and that trend shows no signs of slowing.
Good information governance (IG) is far more than an information technology problem. Often, efforts to address IG fail due to a poorly defined strategy, lack of adequate support from executives across the enterprise, missing or ineffective policy and procedure, and inadequately executed change management.
The importance of managing, securing, sharing and measuring information is the core of IG. Many organizations know they need to act on it but do not know where to turn or what to do next.
We've created a white paper with tips from IT, governance and security experts to help ensure your IG practices enable you to extract the value of information to manage and share information, mitigate risk, make better decisions and move your business forward.
