Basically, information governance is about taking control of all your information. Although it sounds simple, information management is quite complex. Data that needs to be processed, stored and used in enterprises is increasing day by day. Misunderstanding of information governance can greatly increase the costs of the business. Not only to comply with the standards, laws and regulations of regulatory and supervisory bodies; it also ensures maximum value from the data for product development, increasing sales, customer service satisfaction, etc.
The volume of data is growing exponentially. This data includes Structured and Unstructured Data, Electronic and Paper Documents, Internal and External Data, Digital Video and Audio Data. Information governance is quite different from records management and must be approached within a plan.
Information security is the protection of assets and systems through appropriate controls, policies, procedures, software and hardware. When areas in an organization are not integrated into security procedures, security gaps can arise in the coverage area to the extent that they can harm the company. Information governance provides a framework that closes these gaps by horizontally integrating business areas that work in vertical silos. Information governance is an organization’s coordinated, inter-disciplinary approach to satisfying information compliance requirements and managing information risks while optimizing information value.
In the information age we live in, businesses are struggling to protect their most important resources, company and customer data. Every year, businesses lose billions of pounds due to data leaks and pay millions of pounds in fines. In addition, irreparable damage occurs to the reputation of companies. Implementing an information governance plan is key to avoiding victimization and keeping the company’s information safe. With the widespread use of computers, there have been constant concerns about computer security. In addition to information systems, there are data sources such as smartphones, tablets, etc. that produce a huge amount of data. Today’s criminals have a high degree of technical skills, and the number of cybercriminals will continue to grow as technology becomes more prevalent. Crime as we know it in the physical world will evolve with new technologies to create new definitions of crime and continue to become widespread in the virtual world.
