Information Governance ANZ brings together professionals from different disciplines across all types of organisations to develop and promote information governance best practices and innovations.


A technological revolution has begun, one that combines digital and physical systems to create radically new value propositions. This evolving digital world can disrupt existing businesses that do not have a proactive information governance program.

Information is now the most important asset in business savvy enterprises.


For the first time in history, the world's leading experts on accelerating technology are consistently finding themselves too conservative in their predictions...

Effective information governance is imperative for enterprises to maximise the value of all business information and minimise the risk in an increasingly security conscious global landscape. Professionals who lead the way in creating pathways and methods for organisations to achieve this will reap the benefits.

The emerging field of information governance requires the engagement of professionals from multiple disciplines, including - cybersecurity, legal, information technology, information management, records management, privacy, risk and compliance.

The purpose of Information Governance ANZ is to provide a forum where professionals can collaborate to develop a community that promotes best practices and innovations of information governance activities and technologies that organisations employ to maximise the value of their information while minimising associated risks and costs.


Our Resources

The Information Governance ANZ Mission is to bring together a community of information governance professionals in Australia and New Zealand to develop and promote best practices and innovations in information governance.

The Information Governance ANZ community provides a forum to learn from leading practitioners, keep informed of the latest developments, and shape the future development of information governance.
