Authored by Microsoft MVP & InfoGovCon 2015 (#InfoGov15) Keynote Speaker, Christian Buckley, "Building The Knowledge Management Hypergraph" will help you answer the question, "How do we manage our organization's knowledge well into the future?". This special White Paper will help you understand the aspects of "A Different Kind Of" Knowledge Management.
The Information Governance Initiative (IGI) and InfoGovCon are joining forces to drive the adoption of information governance. This strategic alliance, announced on February 19, 2015, will address the needs of the full range of IG stakeholders – from the practitioners in the trenches executing on IG to the executives making the decisions – by increasing IG literacy and promoting a common frame of reference.
The IGI is a cross-disciplinary think tank, community, and consortium focused on foundational IG research and executive education and collaboration. InfoGovCon produces an annual multiday IG conference that was created as a low-cost, peer-driven alternative for IG practitioners seeking education and networking. InfoGovCon also produces webinars and training, and provides a community where members contribute content, nominate and vote on awards, and discuss all things related to IG.
Executives of both the IGI and InfoGovCon believe that bringing the two organizations together will help IG to coalesce and mature as a profession, discipline, and market. The alliance will provide a multi-platform offering to IG practitioners that will deliver insight and tactics around the concept, market, and work of IG.
The IGI and InfoGovCon look forward to continuing to build and grow their IG activities with its valued partners including ARMA, AHIMA, The Innovation Enterprise, CDM Media, EDRM, ILTA, CFO Alliance, MER, and many others.
IGI and InfoGovCon hosted a live announcement of the alliance on Global Information Governance Day (Thursday, February 19th). You can view the recording below for more information.
The organizations are working on IGI’s Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO) Summit to be held from May 20-21, 2015 in Chicago, IL. You can learn more about the event here. They are also working on The Information Governance Con that takes place from September 29-October 1, 2015. Details to be announced shortly.
While many of us are years away from retirement, most have had the experience of changing teams, changing roles, or changing companies -- and with it we have all witnessed one of the most flagrant gaps in our corporate knowledge management schemes: losing knowledge due to these changes.
Similarly, most of us remember that in years past, when you joined a team or started a new role, part of your employee on-boarding and training was to receive "The Binder: The Source of All Collective Knowledge and Business Process Wisdom."
The FBI insists that the Sony Pictures Entertainment breach was solely the mastermind of North Korean hackers; however, other experts and analysis believe a far more insidious player was involved: a malicious insider. A malicious insider intentionally takes confidential internal information from a business for his/her own purposes. And, any employee (current or former), contractor, business partners or anyone with access to the organization’s confidential personal or corporate information could be malicious insider. Thus, at the beginning of any employment or contractual relationship, an organization must begin with the end in mind.
Forward-thinking organizations have a pretty good sense of why they must have official policies that govern the way they classify, protect, retain, and dispose of their business-critical information – even if they haven’t yet implemented formal programs in those arenas. But here’s the thing: without the will to actually enforce those policies, they’ll likely find themselves having moved the compliance needle barely at all! So making sure people understand that your wish is their command has to be part of the thinking as well.
This article will be the first in a series that outlines a practical approach to moving from Information Governance strategy to the information management pieces that enable the strategy.
First, it is important to acknowledge that Information Governance is not a cipher for "Acquire a Enterprise Content Management system"
Second, it is important to be practical regarding what needs to be protected (e.g. records, PII, etc) and what information can be left unprotected.
While this is common sense to many of practitioners; I do not think it gets articulated well enough to organizations. These two acknowledgements are key, in my experience, to getting past the onerous baggage that comes from the word Governance.
