What is Information Governance, or IG?

“Information Governance is all the rules, regulations, legislation, standards and policies with which organizations need to comply when they create, share and use information.” – Chris Walker, VP of AIIM Canada

In essence, IG is everything having to do with the formation, utilization, storage and deletion of information – whether it is a document, electronic content or any other form of record.

In addition to records management, IG draws on legal, risk and IT expertise for a holistic approach to protecting, using and driving value from an organization’s information.
