RIM Stakeholders and the Information Governance Reference Model: Information Governance Best Practices

It’s InfoGov day!  As part of the Educational partnership between Ipro and eDiscovery Today that was announced recently, I’m excited to say that I will be writing a new weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog, to supplement the excellent educational content that Jim Gill and the Ipro team regularly provide!  Just like I do on eDiscovery Today, I will write educational posts about a variety of topics related to eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy.

Today’s weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog continues a new six(!) part series started two weeks ago on considering the five stakeholder groups of EDRM’s Information Governance Reference Model (IGRM) and continued last week with a look at Legal stakeholders.  Records and information management (RIM) stakeholders who are members of ARMA International operate according to a standard of eight Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles®, which guide information management and governance of record creation, organization, security maintenance and other activities used to effectively support recordkeeping of an organization.  RIM stakeholders are expected to own at least two of those principles within an organization and there are several things that they can do to help an organization improve its overall Information Governance program.

So, what are the primary objectives and recommendations for RIM stakeholders?  You can find out on Ipro’s blog here.  Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click!  And, of course, I’ll still be continuing to write plenty of posts on eDiscovery Today as well!


So, what do you think?  Does your organization have a fully developed InfoGov program involving all five stakeholder groups?   Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
