Information technology (IT) lets us work and collaborate in ways that we could not have imagined just a few years ago. Networks, hardware, and software provide anytime, anywhere access and data portability. We use networks to deploy, access and use information, software applications and resources.
The amount of information grows each year, and we extend access to users within and outside of our organizations. Good data governance requires increased diligence in protecting information.The challenge is to provide access to information, applications, and systems, while balancing the acceptable level of risk and optimizing costs.
