Information Governance

Information Governance Challenges Organizations Face

Information is the lifeblood of every organization.  But managing and protecting information in today’s world, where information continues to grow exponentially in volume, increase in variety, and move with greater velocity, is extraordinarily challenging.  Organizations face countless information governance challenges—from challenges locating needed information for business or legal reasons to challenges posed by over-retention of information with no legal or business value.  Without the implementation of practical information governance strategies designed to leverage organization’s people, processes, and technology, organizations cannot meet their specific information governance challenges.  Non-compliance with regulatory requirements, including but not limited to data minimization obligations, records retention obligations, information disposition obligations, and recordkeeping obligations, can have significant legal consequences.  Poor information governance practices can also result in significant business costs.  Organizations need experienced, responsive, trusted counsel who can assist them in managing their specific information governance challenges.
