Foundations of Intelligent Information Management, Domain 4: How to Automate Governance and Compliance

One of the key challenges of effective information management is that users don’t want to do it. That is, they already have jobs, and information management is often seen as administration, or overhead, or busywork, etc. And even if they did, it’s not what they are trained to do. So to be effective, organizations have to embrace the approach of “streamline and automate.” Compliance and record keeping tasks need to be automated to the maximum extent possible, so they occur in the background. At the same time, organizations need to balance the need for compliance and risk management with the need for them to achieve their core goals and objectives.

In this course, we’ll show you how to develop an effective information governance framework. We’ll review strategies for identifying what information you have and how it’s used and managed. We’ll define personal and sensitive data and offer strategies for keeping it safe. We’ll introduce the idea of records management and the importance of the information lifecycle. And we’ll provide strategies for ensuring access to digital information over time.
