I have some news to share. Canon Business Process Services (Canon) has just issued a new eBook, “Minimize Business Risk: Top 5 Information Governance Obstacles You Must Tackle Now.” The eBook points out that when business executives hear the term “information governance,” they assume that their enterprise has the best practices and staff in place to continuously minimize business risk. This is often not the case.
It’s important to remember that business leaders are accountable when it comes to ensuring that corporate information governance policies, procedures, tools and training are kept up to date in order to support the organization’s compliance requirements and minimize risk. To meet this responsibility, executives must be prepared to identify, tackle and overcome information governance related obstacles.
With this is mind, the eBook helps information professionals and business executives focus on five key areas that can help them teach employees about the importance of information governance and align their organization to support its IG initiatives. These five areas of focus include:
• Keeping up to date on the latest regulations and compliance requirements
• Knowing the potential of the cloud for an organization’s data repository
• Managing data remediation
• Promoting threat awareness
• Advancing the importance of metadata and managing retention
The eBook is offered by Canon and written by AIIM, the association that provides independent research, education and certification programs to information professionals.
