Information Governance” has become a popular buzzword in the data law and management space, and it means much more than electronic records management on steroids. It encompasses data security, privacy, information management and e-discovery, and particularly the intersection and synergy of these functions to form an integrated and coordinated approach to managing an organization’s data infrastructure and assets. In our recent report, “Data Law Trends & Developments: E-Discovery, Privacy, Cybersecurity & Information Governance”, on page 4, I write about this growing trend toward convergence, the benefits of a holistic approach, and the risks of failing to have an effective information governance program.
