In previous blogs we have talked about the confusion between Information Management and Information Governance, and suggested there are two ways in which organizations can approach the task of implementing Information Governance.
We have already explored the traditional top-down approach, and in this blog we will now look at the alternative approach.
Information Governance as a roll-up
The overall objective of an Information Governance initiative is to apply rules and structure to the management of data as information. The bottom‑up approach meets this objective by implementing a series of individual projects or initiatives that can range from simple retention programs to the identification and management of data that can be defensibly deleted.
