Information Governance Requires alignment between a number of functions and strategies.  At the very least these include:

  • Alignment to corporate strategy, ensuring that benefits of information governance are clearly understood and communicated, showing how they directly assist the business in achieving its strategy
  • Close integration with Corporate Governance, and especially as it relates to "Information and IT Governance" as is described in King IV
  • Records management, with specific focus on  classification, accountability, security, retention and disposal
  • Risk Management overall, .with specific emphasis on Information Risk
  • Information Security and ensuring that information in all formats and locations is identified, classified and protected throughout its lifecycle
  • Privacy.  In South Africa this means Protection of Personal Information (POPIA), but there could be GDPR or other privacy implications for organisations spanning multiple countries.   Read more information on Compliance with POPIA 
  • Enterprise Content Management, and ensuring that all "unstructured information" is correctly managed, ensuring that duplication is minimised or eliminated, and that information is shared appropriately.
  • e-discovery, and the ability to easily identify, locate and retrieve information which may be required for any purpose.  All information relating to a case or subject must be identifiable.
  • Master data management and data quality.  The "structured data" residing in corporate ICT systems needs to be managed as an integral component of Information Governance.
