From the Inside Flap
Big Data is here to stay. It has been estimated that 90% of thedata in the world today was created in the last two years. At theenterprise level, though, only about a quarter of this dataactually has business value. Storing and maintaining unneeded“data debris” is costly and diverts resources away fromthe management of high value information. Organizations need toadopt information governance (IG) policies in order to streamlineand systematize approaches to Big Data and to more efficiently meetcompliance and legal demands. Information Governance is thefirst book to address both the big-picture concepts and the proven,detailed best practices that are central to deploying IG.
This book addresses the five key impact areas of IG, as set outin the Information Governance Reference Model (IGRM): LegalFunctions, Records and Information Management (RIM), InformationTechnology (IT), Privacy & Security, and Business Operations.Leading subject matter experts such as Barclay Blair, MonicaCrocker, Charles Dollar, Randy Kahn, Esq., Barry Murphy, and othersprovide valuable new insights. Specific recommended processes,technologies, and best practices are presented in a clear,understandable format. For mid- and large-sized enterprises,information is a key source of value. But retaining excessiveinformation also carries legal and compliance risks. InInformation Governance, Robert Smallwood demonstrates justhow costly mismanaged information can be. To minimize risk relatedto poor IG, organizations need to pare information down to theessentials and secure it properly. Inside, learn how to do thesethings the right way, to ensure compliance with internal governancerequirements and external regulatory and legal demands.
If information governance is so important, why have IG programsnot been adopted by more organizations? And more importantly, whyhave so many existing IG programs failed so miserably? Smallwoodexplains that costs and benefits associated with informationgovernance are still not widely understood. In the pages ofInformation Governance, the author builds the business casefor IG through a comprehensive, pioneering approach forinformation-related risk assessments that leverages high valueinformation.
Carrying out well-considered IG initiatives is not easy,particularly when so much valuable information is stored andaccessed by third-party service providers. Social media, mobilecomputing, and cloud computing, and certainly traditional e-mail,are exposed to leakage and theft risks. Even discarding unneededinformation in a legally defensible way can be quite challenging.Information Governance addresses the practicalities ofmanaging these various information platforms. This comprehensivebook—the most comprehensive ever compiled on IG—is anessential resource to equip enterprises with a sound approach togoverning and leveraging information in the age of Big Data.
From the Back Cover
The first comprehensive approach to InformationGovernance
By now, everyone knows that information can be enormouslyvaluable, but how is that value affected by the huge costs involvedin storing and maintaining it? How can organizations separate the“irrelevant sludge” of information from the real datagoldmines?

Information Governance providesanswers to these questions and many more. From broad concepts tothe nuts and bolts of implementation, this book is an essentialfirst step in any successful IG program.
