Keeping Up with the “Alphabet Soup” of Compliance: Information Governance Trends

This week’s blog post for Ipro’s blog is about the challenges that organizations face today with regard to compliance requirements.  It’s not only about the Big Data challenge, which I’ve discussed before (including here on a previous Ipro post), but also about the veritable “alphabet soup” of compliance regulations to adhere to in today’s world.  How many of these do you know?

Many people don’t – and this is not even a comprehensive list!  Most importantly, do you know the two letters that are critical to help your organization keep up with the compliance requirements associated with all those other letters?

You can find out what all the “alphabet soup” of compliance acronyms relate to above, as well as those important two letters, on Ipro’s blog here. 😉  It’s just one more click!  And their graphic is better than mine too.

Also, the Digital Government Institute (DGI) eDiscovery, Records & Information Management Virtual Conference is tomorrow, March 25, and IPRO is a sponsor and participant at the conference.  Brandon Balsley, Product Marketing Manager at IPRO will be leading the session Top Challenges for FOIA Professionals Today at 9:15am ET.  Complete agenda for the conference is here and the link to register is here.  Check it out!

So, what do you think?  Did you realize how many regulations and requirements there are that organizations need to address these days?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
