Geneva, Switzerland, February 21, 2012. RSD, a leading provider of information governance solutions for the enterprise, today announced the release of a new video whitepaper by Barclay T. Blair titled “Your Information Governance Moment.”
“I am thrilled to announce Your Information Governance Moment, a new video whitepaper produced in partnership with RSD,” said Barclay T. Blair, information governance industry analyst. “Your Information Governance Moment is a three-part series designed to explain the basics of information governance in an easy-to-understand format. The video format allows us to better explain the moving pieces of information governance.”
“RSD has been talking about information governance (IG) since early as 2008,” commented Tamir Sigal, Director of Marketing at RSD. “As the concept grows in popularity and usage, it is increasingly important that we continue to educate our customers about information governance. We are thrilled to partner with Barclay Blair, an expert in the field, to help drive awareness for information governance.”
Information governance enforces desirable behavior in the creation, use, archiving, and deletion of corporate information. IG addresses regulations over multiple jurisdictions, as well as corporate standards for managing information. Information governance ensures proper retention and disposal of records, ensures data privacy rules are enforced, and supports e-discovery requirements, storage optimization, and metadata management.
“As the official sponsor of information governance, RSD bears responsibility for taking the lead on information governance educational initiatives, and is proud to deliver the first video white paper on this topic,” continued Sigal. “Our goal is to lift the fog surrounding information governance and dispel any confusion. Barclay’s vast experience and understanding of this field make him the perfect partner for this program.”
