We have worked on information governance projects with clients in over a dozen industries, including financial services; insurance; healthcare; architecture, engineering and construction; food and beverage; broadcasting, media and entertainment; alcohol; manufacturing; retail; and technology. In light of the breadth and depth of our industry experience and our passion for staying abreast of industry-related information governance obligations, we know a lot about the information governance issues a client is likely to face even before we head into our first meeting with the client. This allows us to spend more time focusing on each client’s approach to and challenges with meeting specific information governance obligations.
