The committee would then set the objectives and goals for the corporation's information governance strategy, which should then get translated into a set of policies that can be enforced. They will create a written statement of what the initiative is looking to achieve, which lays out the vision and helps employees understand their relationship to information governance policies. These objectives include achieving greater overall operational efficiency, reducing IT infrastructure costs and re-allocating resources, improving compliance across the organization to reduce risks, ensuring the organization extracts and maximizes value from its information, and helping employees balance their roles and ensure accountability by assigning responsibilities.
Information governance has become a critical subject as businesses continue to generate an increasing amount of sensitive data that requires policy management and compliance. 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.
