Our information environment is rapidly changing. We are witnessing an explosion not only in the volume, but also in the variety (both format and type of content) of information being created. According to some estimates, the amount of digital data in the world is expected to almost double every two years.1 Some view this surge in information as mostly creating risk. They are concerned about the dangers lurking in the looming mountains of data. Others see the value and are focused on the insights they can extract from the information gold mine. They are both right. Risk and value are opposite sides of the same coin. Organizations must address both, and information governance (IG) is the approach that will enable them to do so.
