Information Risk Assessment

Gartner predicts that enterprise data will grow 650% in the next five years.

Is your organization prepared to handle this type of data growth? RIM, Legal, and IT (and others) need to begin anticipating the ways in which their businesses and employees will be operating by 2020.

  • Which technologies are likely to be adopted by your company?
  • How will current and future employees, especially those now entering the workforce, work and communicate?
  • How will the technologies and platforms transform the business of records and information management?
  • What strategies will you employ to stay abreast, and even ahead of, these changes?

A structured, risk-assessment approach can help to identify the areas of concern and provide a basis for formulating an effective mitigation strategy. However, typical Records and Information Management Risk Assessments only focus on the following areas:

  • Policies and procedures
  • Operations
  • Records classifications
  • Security
  • Hard copy and electronic copy
  • Education and communication
  • Auditing and monitoring

These areas, while still relevant, are not sufficient for the challenges of 2020. A more specific tool is required. A 2020 Records and Information Management Risk Assessment should be looking at the following in addition:

  • Computing platforms
  • Use of data (e.g., big data applications, machine learning)
  • Mobile devices
  • Social media
  • Cloud computing and storage
  • Privacy and information security
