Defining IG for Law Firms

Information governance means different things to different people. Recently, when leading industry organization IGI (Information Governance Initiative) asked its community members to help it define the term, respondents agreed that there are a wide range of activities that fall under the umbrella of IG.

What is GDPR?

GDPR

Starting May 25, 2018, organisations that collect and store data on citizens in European Union (EU) countries must begin complying with strict new rules around protecting customer data.

GDPR Compliance Starts With Information Governance

As the deadline for GDPR implementation edges closer, discussions about compliance are mostly focused on how to ensure organizations have permission to use the data they’re collecting and processing. This makes sense in the light of today’s data-driven world, in which seemingly every part of our digital lives is tracked and stored. According to Gartner, data is growing 40-60% year over year.

However, discussions often fail to address the challenges organizations will face when it comes to securing and managing records and data after they have been collected. And this is important. GDPR introduces many new requirements for how personal information pertaining to EU citizens can be stored and processed. GDPR covers a wide range of data issues, such as the right to be forgotten; the right to data access; privacy impact assessments; data protection by design; and information security.
