Information & Data Governance

Information & Data Governance is an increasingly important aspect of business risk management for organisations that hold significant amounts of data and information. For some organisations it is appropriate to have an Information Governance strategy as a part of their risk and compliance measures. An Information & Data Governance strategy is likely to cover primary considerations in the acquisition, storage, maintenance and protection of different types of information and data, including


  • content  - what do we need?
  • acquisition / manufacture  - do we create it or buy it?
  • storage - how do we store (and retrieve) different categories of information?
  • value - how do we value our information, what's it worth?
  • security - how do we govern access to different categories of information?
  • protection - should our information be copyrighted, encrypted, watermarked, seeded or otherwise protected from theft?
  • usage - what uses or applications of our information do we permit?
  • quality - how do we measure the quality of our information?
  • maintenance - how do we maintain the quality and value of our information?
  • disposal - how do we determine what information to discard and when?
  • technology - what technologies do we use to store, retrieve and manage our information?


Information or Data Governance is clearly crucial for the processing of personal data, which is a regulated activity, but it is also very important in ensuring that the organisation has and maintains the information and data that it needs, does not carry the burden of maintaining that which it doesn't need, can protect the asset value of information, and can access information effectively and efficiently.
