Information Governance is normally viewed as a collection of Compliance, IT Security, Privacy, and Ediscovery stuff. I submit that IG, viewed properly, is much broader.
Take, for example, today’s WSJ article. “Middle East Media Outlets Use Crisis to Shape Opinion,” Wall Street Journal, June 25, 2014 A9 http://on.wsj.com/1sFHHB8 Deals with the press in various Middle East countries slanting their reporting of the recent events around ISIS in Iraq according to local political leaders.
Information Governance includes communications, and shaping of opinion, both internally and externally; this applies both to governments and to companies. Who’s your audience?
