Information Governance

Information governance is the framework that defines how organizations handle data. This includes regulations on data storage and archives. It can also include who has access to particular data. It should include details on who has relevant roles in data governance and what the policies are within an organization.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Information Governance

Efficient information governance means everyone in an organization knows how to handle data. For SMBs, this helps ensure that everyone who needs access to certain data has it, and to prevent issues such as data leaks. Having specific members of a team manage information governance helps maximize efficiency.
