From Risk Focused Cost Centre to Strategic Asset: Driving a Unified, Proactive Approach to Information Governance across the Enterprise
Historically, the C-Suite has had a tendency to only prioritise Information Governance when litigation or investigations have shone a light on an unacceptable level of risk, liability and cost.
However, as the majority of highly regulated corporations have now experienced the implications of leaving themselves exposed in such a way, there is now an increasing consensus that managing data in the reactive, siloed ways of the past is no longer acceptable. There have been an unprecedented number of high profile incidents such as the Snowdon Revelations, NSA and Target breach. Added to this is the fact that challenges surrounding data governance are the most often cited inhibitors preventing investment in key strategic initiatives such as migration to the Cloud, Mobility and Big Data projects.
Information Governance is now a Board level priority. There is recognition that a shift towards a proactive approach to data repositioned as a vital strategic asset will enable informed decision making and drive profitability at the same time as minimising risk.
As such, for organisations that recognise the need to reposition their approach to managing information, the Information Governance Exchange provides a platform to benchmark with an exclusive group of senior peers and solution providers capable of helping them define and successfully navigate this new territory.
