Information Governance is the practice of structuring, organizing, accounting for, and securing all your company’s data in a way that makes the information you need instantly accessible, and that provides strong protective layers of security against data-related threats.
Implementing a thorough Information Governance System can be complex and overwhelming, but the risks of neglecting Information Governance can be significant. It’s critical to your business’ success that the rapidly growing data volumes and regulations are managed appropriately.
On 25 May 2018 the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force. If you are an EU business, or are doing business with EU countries and store personal data, you need to implement robust Information Governance immediately to be in compliance with this law.
