I was recently asked to be the keynote speaker for a conference regarding the topic of information governance (IG). When thinking about all of the main components related to information governance and why information professionals should start using the title of Information Governance Officer or adding IG into their resume, the salary differential became top of mind.
Over the past several weeks, it’s been my pleasure to participate in a TweetJam and a couple of podcasts with my friends at SearchContentManagement.com and Word of Pie on the current state and immediate future of Enterprise Content Management (ECM), especially as it relates to electronic file-sharing services and the cloud. This run of analytical and speculative reporting has been both enlightening and fun, and it has cemented a belief that I’ve held for a couple of years now:
The transformative welter of ECM/EIM/governance goodness we’ve been expecting to overtake us for years remains in the mirror, and is further away than it appears to be.
Organizations of all sizes these days need to concern themselves with managing their software supply chain.

Like it or not, data tokenization technologies are taking information classification and categorization to the next level. While information governance and regulatory compliance have been bedfellows for quite a while, the loss of sensitive information (e.g., cardholder data: CHD) due to a spat of multiple data breaches has led to renewed attention on this subject. One relatively new technical solution out there to combat this challenge is called stateless tokenization.
