Most organizations don’t understand the risks posed by insufficient information governance until it’s too late. Companies are struggling to find the right balance between enforcing compliance and providing flexibility to encourage innovation and providing employees access to the "right" information in a timely fashion.
It can be hard to keep your head above water with the constant flood of data pouring in, out, and around your organization. Data can all too easily be dispersed, misplaced or lost — making critical information more difficult to manage and locate; and potentially opening confidential or proprietary information to disclosure. And in an e-discovery or enforcement situation, you may find yourself casting large nets across the organization and sifting through GBs and in some cases TBs of data to locate potentially responsive information. Such a disjointed response can waste time and money and leave you at a credibility deficit, complicating an already challenging situation. And increasingly sophisticated cyber breaches, e-discovery, and regulatory actions are compounded by the ever-changing patchwork of global privacy laws.
There’s no substitute for the confidence that comes from a sophisticated, holistic information governance plan that encompasses records and information management, privacy, cybersecurity and eDiscovery.
