What effects are social media and mobile activities having on governance activities within organizations?

From R. Hale: The big challenge with BYOD is consumer practice and capabilities according to the organizations and it’s driving a lot of innovation right now. Information governance has to continue looking to support users in those endeavors without blocking what they’re doing and providing a safety net. We need professionals and skills and technologies to support them and help bring together the “I do it my way” versus the way the organization needs it done for a governance purpose. It’s a bridge that needs to be crossed.

Ed Hallock, senior director of North American marketing at RSD, moderated the panel.
