In today’s digital environment, the growing number and complexity of challenges associated with data and information have outpaced traditional information and records management practices. The Information Governance Primer address these challenges by providing a guide to developing a holistic enterprise-wide system to mitigate risks and maximise opportunities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of access to accurate and real-time data for decision-making by senior executives and boards, access and reliability of organisational systems and information for employees to carry out day-to-day work and for decision-making at all levels throughout the organisation and information security and the increasing cyber risks arising from working remotely and the increasing use and reliance on third-party platforms and software.
The Information Governance Primer addresses these unfolding issues and provide practical guidance in how organisations can implement robust governance to mitigate risks. It will assist you to develop a well-executed IG framework and program, with appropriate leadership to deliver effective security and control of data and information by reducing costs of holding information and maximising the value of information held by your organisation.
The Information Governance Primer not only articulates persuasively the rationale for implementing good information governance, but aims to equip IG practitioners with the knowledge required to build and improve information governance across a range of organisation types including government, corporates and not-for-profits.
The Information Governance Primer provides a general overview of information governance, covering a range of important factors including the key drivers of IG, benefits of successful IG implementation, an outline of IG models and frameworks plus the role of IG leadership in establishing robust information governance.
The Information Governance Primer is available on the InfoGovANZ website.
