Summary:

According to ACC’s 2018 survey of CLOs, the top three issues keeping CLOs up at night are regulatory or governmental changes (74%), data breaches (70%), and information privacy (68%). Information governance lies at the heart of all three of these issues, and is a key reason why organizations are transforming how they manage, protect and access data. Yet not all information governance programs are equal, or have the executive buy-in, staffing or budgets to achieve meaningful results.

Attend this webcast to learn the specifics – budgets, priorities, quantifiable results – of how corporations are building and managing information governance programs. This webcast will feature survey results from a recent Bloomberg study benchmarking information governance programs across a number of key vertical industries.
