How Well Is Your Information Governance Program Working?

A Guide to Auditing Compliance and Maintaining IG Programs

If your organization has implemented or is implementing an Information Governance program, congratulations! Information Governance programs are key to controlling legal and business risk by limiting how much data your organization holds, controlling where data is kept, and improving accessibility of important data. But, not so fast… has your organization actually achieved all of those things?

After the work of refining records retention periods, creating policies affecting data and device use, and implementing processes to control data, there is still more work to be done. A good Information Governance program must be kept current and involves auditing how well the policies and processes are working. In this webinar, we will discuss the steps to ensuring your Information Governance program remains successful for years to come.

In this program, we will discuss:

  • The role of auditing compliance in Information Governance Programs
  • How to incorporate audits into your program to improve Information Governance
  • Specific techniques to assess achievement of Information Governance goals and employee compliance
