Deep in the information age, we generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day, about 1.6 MB per second, per person on the planet. Put to work, that information drives business strategy and sparks remarkable innovation. At the same time, endless data breaches spell disaster for organizations and for many whose information is lost to hackers. Likewise, vast quantities of data that could power analytics remain unused because businesses lack the resources to retrieve the information efficiently. Organizations that understand both the risks of poorly managed data and the benefits of effective information governance seek to manage data assets in a way that keeps sensitive information safe while unlocking the benefits of big data.
