When the IT and records departments work strategically with in-house counsel, they can make a huge impact in implementing technology to enforce and support information governance policy and track company-wide compliance thereof. The ability to automate IG as much as possible, and track compliance across the company is absolutely critical in achieving ROI from the precious time and resources that are invested in building out these programs.
All too often, even after an investment into IG has been made, many projects are not enforced or monitored for compliance, making it difficult to rely on the results. I recently wrote an article for InformationWeek about steps IG teams can take to build enforcement into their policies from the outset.
