Foundational Services

Tackling information governance can be an overwhelming prospect. The breadth of issues and their complexity can make it difficult for organizations to simply get started. Many organizations, for example, get discouraged at the outset of an IG project when they confront the incredible volume of existing information that must be brought into line with a new policy.

This is why it is important to take a phased approach that allows incremental improvements on a sensible timetable.
