Topics of an IG program
Data and information are important production factors which are worked with, or at least should be worked with. Value of data and information is rising rapidly. Thus creating the need for organisations to have the highest possible control over their data. Information Management based on intelligent Information Governance principles helps to manage, control and decommission an organisation's data - no matter the format, medium, origin or quality. Information Management generates value and makes sure to fulfil legal and regulatory requirements at any time.
We can assist you with the NetGovern Information Management Suite and our expertise about Information Governance. NetGovern ensures data security and compliance with connectivity to both cloud and on premise platforms, smart audits, intellegent search, eDiscovery and case management functionalities.
Data volumes continue to increase (Digital Landfill) but deletion of data is almost impossible as usually it is not known where data is located or whether copies exist. Unmanageable data silos continue to multiply. Every App creates its own data stack which cannot be exchanged with others. Location of data is never disclosed; increasing the possibility of losing relevant documents. Searching for information is becoming more expensive and complicated and the ability to provide complete factual information is reduced as information can be falsified and inadequate. Accuracy of information cannot be guaranteed and legal requirements cannot be met, thereby exposing the company to massive risks. When litigations occur, companies must yield to the immense costs caused by documents being manually worked through several times. Management and employees are losing confidence in the quality of information processing, IT, and the management of information entrusted to organisational units such as health care providers. Operating costs increase as the search for information is more time consuming. Departments, which are responsible for IM, lose credibility because they cannot meet the growing information needs.
Comprehensive and actionable IG focusses on the following issues
What business importance/impact do data/information have and how can it be trusted?
What opportunities and threats are generated by data accumulation/hoarding and information content (“big data”)?
Where does data reside and how does it get there?
How can data be accessed?
Who generates data and who owns it?
Of what quality is the collected data?
Who controls data?
How does the lifecycle of data flow and what are the requirements at each stage?
What is the best form of security to protect data that is exposed to risk?
How can IG be implemented technically?
Which compliance requirements are most important for the company?
Where does the company stand regarding legal compliance when compared to competitors?
Can you afford the cost of eDiscovery?
If your organization is facing litigation, it's important to understand the real costs associated with litigation and eDiscovery.
Did you know that collecting, reviewing, and sending out data represents 73% of the cost of eDiscovery?
NetGovern eDiscovery includes in-place smart collection tools that provide you with full visibility into your data prior to collection. Working directly in all of your on premise and enterprise clouds, you can perform searches, early case assessment, and computer-assisted reviews to collect only the minimum amount of data required in response to litigation. By reducing your data for collection, you'll quickly lower the cost of eDiscovery.
Another day, another phishing attack?
Ransomware, malware, and phishing remain the top attack vectors for criminals, despite the arsenal of security measures deployed by your security team. But once malicious email has made its way into your organization, there aren’t many solutions to remediate and remove it from employee inboxes.
NetGovern Audit & Remediate allows you to identify and retract malicious email containing ransomware, malware, and phishing, or confidential email containing protected health information (PHI) or personally identifiable information (PII) from employee inboxes. Once found, you can quarantine the email by removing it from mailboxes for review or return it if it is found to be legitimate.
Struggling with sensitive information management?
One of the key goals of any information governance program is to manage sensitive information. With GDPR, HIPAA, and dozens of other privacy regulations, organizations need to understand what data is stored, where, and who has access to it.
NetGovern Audit & Remediate allows you to build an inventory of your sensitive information with full search and review capabilities. You can create policies with specific search criteria to apply to sensitive data, receive regular reports, and automate actions for remediation.
Is your archiving solution holding your data hostage?
Does your organization have a requirement for long-term retention of data? If you do, then you know that keeping data in live systems is very expensive. Although there are many archiving solutions on the market, many of them do not capture all metadata, and seem to be designed to keep your data hostage.
Capable of returning information to its original source, NetGovern Archive was designed as a legal archiving solution. It captures all user metadata and stores it as open XML for long-term or temporary retention on premise or in the cloud. Reduce storage requirements further by removing attachments from live mail systems with Detach technology (included with NetGovern Archive).
