Information governance must be implemented enterprise-wide from a practical standpoint, and the vision must be shared across all stakeholders and jurisdictions, as well as aligned with the corporate agenda. The committee must define the scope and timeline as well as a plan for communication and training of all participants. The scope of the information governance policy should include information retention, data protection and personally identifiable information, legal holds and e-Discovery, audit of compliance, laws and regulations in multiple jurisdictions, use of cloud computing, mobile and on-device storage, migration of information across the storage hierarchy, and taxonomy and classification.

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.
