The results of a major Information Governance (IG) survey, conducted by IGWorld magazine and its partners, was released at last week’s InfoGov World 2021 Expo & Conference, an event held in 3D virtual reality. The ‘Global Information Governance Survey 2021-22’ was underwritten by Hyland, Ricoh USA, Iron Mountain, EDRM, Institute for IG, and Certified Information Governance Officers Association.
The report of the results of the survey, which includes 10 Key Messages, can be found here: https://igsurvey.infogovworld.com/
The survey of IG professionals, consultants, and software/services providers was conducted to measure the pulse of Information Governance in relation to the key challenges IG practitioners are facing, which approaches have yielded benefits, and the tactics used to successfully implement IG.
IG is a multi-disciplinary approach to minimizing information risks and costs, while maximizing value. IG includes facets of Privacy, Security, Data Governance, Info Risk, eDiscovery, Records Management, Data Monetization & more.
“The IG discipline and IG practitioners needed these data points, this new annual resource, to track what is working and which approaches are being used in successful IG programs,” stated Robert Smallwood, CEO of ‘IG World’ magazine, and Chair of the CIGO Association Board of Governors. “And our partners agreed it would be valuable information to help foster the development of IG programs.”
Some findings include the increasing overlap of multiple complementary disciplines in IG, that change management plays a significant role, and that IG Practitioners continue to agree on the coordinating role necessitated by IG.
The Global Information Governance Survey 2021-22 is intended to provide IG practitioners and advisors with information on the strategies and tools others are using, the obstacles they have faced, and the results of those efforts. Download the survey here: https://igsurvey.infogovworld.com/
