Information governance, in simple terms, refers to the structured management and control of an organization’s information assets. It encompasses processes, policies, and practices that ensure data is accurate, secure, accessible, and compliant with legal and regulatory requirements. 

Effective information governance helps organizations make informed decisions, reduce risks, and optimize data utilization.

Information governance is guided by three fundamental principles:

  • Availability: Ensuring that information is readily accessible when needed by authorized users.
  • Integrity: Maintaining the accuracy, consistency, and reliability of data throughout its lifecycle.
  • Security: Protecting data from unauthorized access, breaches, and other security threats to maintain confidentiality and privacy.

Responsibility for information governance (IG) compliance typically falls on multiple stakeholders within an organization. However, it is often overseen by executive-level positions such as a Chief Information Officer (CIO) or a Chief Data Officer (CDO). 

The entire organization shares accountability for compliance, including IT departments, legal teams, data stewards, and employees who handle data on a daily basis. Collaboration among these stakeholders is crucial to ensure effective IG compliance.

Information governance (IG) standards are a set of guidelines, best practices, and industry-specific regulations that organizations follow to establish and maintain a robust IG framework. These standards vary by industry and may include regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, or ISO 27001, among others. Compliance with IG standards helps organizations safeguard data, mitigate risks, and demonstrate their commitment to responsible data management, thereby fostering trust with customers and stakeholders.
