Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
ARMA International today announced the official launch of the Information Governance Assessment, a software platform organizations can use to identify information-related compliance risks across the enterprise, drive improvements, and develop metrics for measuring information governance (IG) program maturity.
“This is the most unbiased tool your organization can use to measure its risks and vulnerabilities related to mishandling corporate information assets,” said Marilyn Bier, ARMA International CEO. “What’s unique about this platform is that it provides an ongoing system for producing reports and metrics that allow the organization to assess how well employees understand and abide by IG policies and procedures, as well as how effective they are.”
Based on the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles® and the Information Governance Maturity Model, whose concepts are widely acknowledged as critical to assessing information risk, the Information Governance Assessment addresses:
- IG requirements included in FCPA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, and COSO
- IG roles and responsibilities
- Aligning IT with IG
- Auditing records and information integrity
- Information security
- Third-party IG risks
- Guarding against improper information disclosure
- Disaster recovery of electronic records
- IG compliance risk
- Litigation holds and e-discovery
- The sufficiency of IG training and documentation
