 For those new to the topics of records and information management (RIM), information governance (IG), risk and compliance, it’s hard to keep new terminology straight. Many of you may believe that a sound records management program implies information governance, but let us assure you that this is not the case.

If you take but one thing away from this session, it should be this:

Information governance programs are high–level, strategic initiatives which designate accountability for the management of all information – from birth to death, regardless of form, throughout all areas of the organization.

Records management programs are much more operational in scope, and are often a mechanism for achieving some of the goals defined during the IG planning.

IG is a strategic initiative of any organization. However, many organizations either fail to recognize the value of a sound IG strategy, or fail to make the connection to organizational strategy.

This session will review RIM / IG strategy and implementation, and then discuss how we start to change the paradigm towards effective RIM / IG programs.

Upon completing this session, you will be able to:

  • Generally describe records management and information life-cycle management
  • Describe strategic information governance
  • Recognize that IG strategy is all about people, and thus the need to guide your IG tactics
  • Identify the key things you need to do to start to turn your efforts into a winning IG strategy.
