Welcome to Information Governance

Information is vital to every organisation and, when used effectively, can bring huge benefits. However, we also have the responsibility of protecting such data, and must consider the value and sensitivity of all information that we deal with. Information should be protected at a level appropriate to the potential impact of its loss or damage.

This course provides a comprehensive guide as to why information is important, the different forms that it can take, potential risks and the actions that you as an employee can take to safeguard company information.
