Information governance is a quality control discipline for adding new rigor and discipline to the process of managing, using, improving and protecting organizational information. Effective data governance can enhance the quality, availability and integrity of a company's data by fostering cross-organisational collaboration and structured policy-making. It balances factional silos with organisational interest, directly impacting the four factors organisations should care about most:
- Increasing revenue
- Lowering costs
- Reducing risks
- Increasing data confidence
Security is a key element of an information framework which should work seamlessly and consistently with other elements across applications and systems. Organisations can ensure compliance with regulations and also minimise exposure to financial risks and privacy concerns by adopting a comprehensive approach to data security
