Canon Business Process Services (Canon) has published a new whitepaper, "Automating Information Governance and Compliance." The whitepaper, part of Canon's future-ready leadership series, addresses strategies for better managing information governance, regulatory compliance and data privacy, which are all pressing concerns for today's business leaders.
To maintain a comprehensive information governance program, organizations must be able to preserve and present information when relevant for potential litigation or compliance audits. Canon's whitepaper examines ways to automate an information governance program in order to minimize the risks associated with these events.
Key topics include best practices for applying frameworks and rules for organizing information assets and steps companies can take to begin automating their information governance practices and procedures. The whitepaper points out that the act of streamlining information governance helps organizations form more comprehensive approaches. Before any automation can be applied, every organization should conduct a comprehensive assessment of information assets across the enterprise and grapple with retention and disposition policies and practices.
