A major challenge is getting Management to buy into Information Governance, especially other than from a legal compliance standpoint.  Harder still is getting the Board to buy into it.  But if the Board buys in, can Management be/stay too far behind?

“GM Board Probing Information Gap,” Wall Street Journal, May 15, 2014 B1

How important is complying with internal company reporting requirements to your career?  Gives a different meaning to the word “cut-out.”  I guess no one thought there’d be litigation.  So no work product protection.
