Information Governance ANZ is a community of international professionals across the data and information sphere - InfoGov, Legal, Data Privacy, Cyber & Info Security, Records Management, eDiscovery, Data & Infonomics, and AI & Ethics - with a multi-disciplinary focus to collaborate and share best practices and promote global information governance innovation.
InfoGovANZ has launched our third industry research survey, which has been tracking the development and trends in information governance over the last five years.
The purpose of this survey is to collect the knowledge and opinions of practitioners and industry participants in relation to their organisation’s development of IG. We want to know what you think about IG, what IG means to your organisation, what drives your IG projects and your thoughts about IG in 2021. This is a great opportunity for you to share what you think and the industry experiences you’ve had.
The IG Industry Report 2021 and the insights obtained from this research survey will be shared with our InfoGovANZ members in the April edition of The Governance of Things. If you are not already a member, you can join here. If you’d like to see the results from our previous surveys, take a look at our 2019 report and our 2017 report.
The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete and all data is collected on an anonymous basis, so any answers you give will not be directly connected to you or your organisation.

Guide. Govern. Protect Information.
As the knowledge economy continues, information is now the most important asset for businesses. Companies with a proactive, and protective, information governance program in place create opportunities to maximise the value of all business information, ensure regulatory compliance and warrant opportunities to minimise risks in an increasingly security conscious global landscape.
For the first time in history, the world's leading experts on accelerating technology are consistently finding themselves too conservative in their predictions...
- Steven Kotler, author, journalist & Director of Research, the Flow Genome Project -
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.
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.
