Abstract

Governance and information governance ought to be an integral part of any government or
organisations information and business strategy. More than ever before information and
knowledge can be produced, exchanged, shared and communicated through many different
mediums. Whilst sharing information and knowledge provides many benefits it also provides
many challenges and risks to governments, global organisations and the individual citizen.
Information governance is one element of a governance and compliance programme, but an
increasingly important one, because many regulations apply to how information is managed
and protected from theft and abuse, much of which resides with external agencies usually
outside the control of the individual citizen. This paper explores some of the compliance and
quality issues within governance and information governance including those ethical
concerns as related to individual citizens and multiple stakeholders engaged directly or
indirectly in the governance process.

More than ever before information and knowledge can be produced, exchanged, shared and communicated through many different mediums. Whilst sharing information and knowledge provides many benefits it also provides many challenges and risks to governments, global organisations and the individual citizen. Information governance is one element of a governance and compliance programme, but an increasingly important one, because many regulations apply to how information is managed and protected from theft and abuse, much of which resides with external agencies usually outside the control of the individual citizen.
