Extract from Johannes Scholtes’ article “Happy Information Governance Day!”
Today is a good day to spend some time implementing your retention policies! Yes, I know, we are all busy, and there are so many other important things that seem more urgent, but is this not always the case?
In 2012, Information Governance Day was created by Garth Landers, Tamir Sigal, and Barclay T. Blair to give more attention to the “enforcement of desirable behavior in the creation, use, archiving, and deletion of corporate information”. In November 2011, Information governance was given national recognition with a directive from President Obama to overhaul current records management processes within the government to encompass current needs more comprehensively.
