OVERVIEW OF INFORMATION GOVERNANCE

1 Introduction
Information is a very important resource in any society. This is so considering that
information is used for ensuring that different transactions are successful. Information is also
powerful and can be used for benevolent or destructive purposes. For this reason, there is a
need to ensure that information is stored in the most effective manner. Effective storage and
responsible sharing of information would help to ensure that information does not leak to
malicious individuals or organizations that can use it for malevolent transactions such as
fraud, cyberwarfare, and blackmail among other activities.
It is also worth noting that unlike in the past when information owned by entities was
in small quantities, different entities today hold massive information. Most of this
information is sensitive and malicious individuals, and organizations can use it against the
entities. For this reason, there is a need to come up with policies that are geared towards
ensuring that all information owned by an entity is secure. Failure to do so will lead to an
increase of cyber-related crimes resulting from poor use of information. In contrary,
enactment of effective policies will ensure that all information, including personal and
organizational information, is protected from any form of malicious use. Among the concepts
that is likely to become the game changer as far as information safety and security is
concerned is the concept of information governance (IG). According to Tallon, Ramirez &
Short (2013), IG refers to the management of information within an organization. This
approach balances the use as well as the security of information. The concept of IG helps
with operational transparency, legal compliance in addition to the reduction of expenditures
linked with legal discovery.
By using the concept of IG, organizations can develop a consistent as well as a logical
framework for the handling of data by employees through their information governance
procedures and policies. IG policies are information since they help in guiding how

organizations, as well as their workers, handle information stored electronically. It is worth
noting that the concept of information governance entails more than conventional records
management (Kooper, Maes & Lindgreen, 2011). Unlike the conventional records
management that aims at ensuring easy storage and access of information, IG incorporates
information protection, security, risk management, data governance, knowledge management,
electronic data recovery, IT management, business intelligence, data science, big data among
other concepts that relate to ensuring security...
