Information lifecycle governance: Keeping track of all those IT assets

Join our #GRCchat Thursday, April 17, to discuss the roles of tracking and managing vital IT assets for an information lifecycle governance strategy.

Information lifecycle governance refers to an enterprise strategy for managing information-related assets and making them available to business decision-makers, all while streamlining processes, reducing storage costs, and ensuring compliance with internal protocols and external regulations. As the name implies, information lifecycle governance tracks assets from their very origin through their usefulness to the enterprise and, finally, to their eventual disposal or storage. It's a complicated process, and we want to hear how compliance teams are stepping up to the task.
