How-to guide for cutting information risk

Organizations seeking to improve the security and management of their data now have access to a new blueprint for successful information governance, a framework for organizations looking to define the roles, policies, processes and metrics required to properly manage the lifecycle of information, including creation, storage, access, and disposal.

Developed by a group of records and information management professionals in the financial services industry and published by Iron Mountain Incorporated, ‘A Practical Guide to Information Governance’ provides organizations with advice for creating and implementing the policies and processes needed to manage information risk and satisfy compliance requirements.

A Practical Guide to Information Governance focuses on several key areas for building information governance programs, including:

  • The definition and key principles of information governance – More than just records and information management, information governance includes roles, policies, processes and metrics, along with 11 core principles that make up a successful program.
  • What is the value of enterprise information governance? – Organizations define value in different ways. For some, it’s reducing the risk of information exposure or loss; for others, it can be mining data for customer trends and revenue generation. Answering the value question can ensure buy-in from executive leaders to help build successful information governance programs.
  • Leadership is key to information governance success – Regardless of the organization, there is one common and critical requirement for the formation and sustainability of a successful information governance program: the creation of an Information Governance Council, a group of executive-level business leaders that has oversight over the design and implementation of a program.
  • Best practices for bringing information governance programs to life – Using real-life stories of success and failure, the guide offers current and emerging processes that can help in building and implementing information governance programs.
