The first step to implementing information governance across the company is to form an information governance steering committee, which includes all the relevant stakeholders such as the CEO, CIO, chief legal counsel, risk officer, compliance officer and a variety of line-of-business executives. Each member needs to understand the potential benefits and impacts it would have on his/her organization. This ensures that everyone is involved in the process from the early stages. The committee would govern the organization's information policies and procedures.

This presentation, outlined by Bassam Zarkout, CTO, RSD, will detail the steps that need to be taken in order to implement an information governance strategy across the enterprise.
