LONDON, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
"By 2016, 20% of CIOs in regulated industries will lose their jobs for failing to implement the discipline of information governance successfully" - Gartner
Historically, the C-Suite has had a tendency to only prioritize Information Governance when litigation or investigations have shone a light on an unacceptable level of risk, liability and cost.
However, as the majority of highly regulated corporations have now experienced the implications of leaving themselves exposed in such a way, there is now an increasing consensus that managing data in the reactive, siloed ways of the past is no longer acceptable.
Challenges surrounding Data Governance are the most often cited inhibitors preventing investment in key strategic initiatives such as migration to the Cloud, Cyber Security, Mobility and Big Data.
Left unaddressed, significant cost savings, additional revenue generation and competitive advantage remain unfulfilled. High profile incidents such as the Target data breach have brought these issues to the forefront of senior leaderships' minds.
There is recognition that a shift towards a proactive, strategic approach to data repositioned as a vital strategic asset to the business will enable informed decision making and drive profitability at the same time as minimizing risk.
As such, the Information Governance Exchange (bit.ly/1ohB1UL) is designed to provide a platform for those corporations that recognise the need to reposition their approach to information governance to benchmark with senior peers and solution providers capable of defining and successfully navigating this new territory.
Attendees at this industry forum will include:
