Information & Governance

There are various types of governance. The umbrella term ‘corporate governance’ essentially entails doing what is right, decent, honest and proper.

Sub-categories relating to information governance include:

  • Data Governance
  • Information Security Governance
  • Responsible Information Management, which, amongst other things, caters for Privacy and Informational Self-Determination

While corporate governance describes the overall management approach through which senior executives direct and control an organisation, information governance, describes the activities that ensure critical information reaches the executive team in time and sufficiently complete and accurate so as to enable appropriate decision-making.

Information has become the over-riding consideration that public and private sector organisations depend upon regardless of their industry sector or service function. At Information Legal we believe that corporate and information governance demand a knowledge of compliance requirements and technological capability.
