A recent presentation by the Compliance, Governance and Oversight Counsel (CGOC) presented the findings of a soon to be released survey on current information governance practices. The survey revealed that, while 98% of the respondents consider defensible records disposal to be a key element of good records management, only 22% are actually able to carry out any type of records disposal. The problem cited by many is that people become “glued” to their information, and those who recognize the need to maintain proper records management (IT, legal, and records), are often left out of the picture.
The study is due to be released at the end of September, and explores the challenges associated with current leadership, ownership, and process management issues that organizations must address in order to implement effective records management. The study is published as part of a CGOC Benchmark Report which also includes models and tools to measure an organization’s progress and allow them to assess their risk. The study was conducted in collaboration with the Information Management Reference Model project of the EDRM.
