About the Course

Information Governance is an important component of a successful information management strategy. IT and data are becoming increasingly important in every aspect of our lives. Whether you are an expert in the field or new to it, Data Protection is one of the most critical areas of governance. Information Governance is how companies understand how important information is and how it must be managed to ensure that there are no security breaches or violations.

Information governance is the ability to manage and protect the information in its various forms. It encompasses more than just records management; it contains several other important organisational functions. In this course, you will learn about some of these functions and how they can be used to help your organisation be more efficient and effective. We'll start with data security and compliance, followed by quality assurance and data governance. Then we'll look at electronic discovery and risk management before moving on to privacy and big data.

You might already have an interest in these areas of IT Management or have heard about them from friends or colleagues who work for companies that are serious about their information systems being protected and governed correctly. Or maybe you're still thinking about it, wondering if this is something you should get involved with? This course will help you make the best decision for your organisation so that you can continue to grow within the business world!

Ever wondered why organisations are losing so much money, time and effort due to data theft? Well, that is because the information is power. In this world where everything is interconnected, connected and automated, it is becoming essential for every business to be at par with the present times. A company that knows where its data lies will be able to make better decisions and take strict but necessary measures. With Information Governance in place, a company can achieve peak efficiency levels and minimise errors while achieving its goals.
