The Council for Information Auto-Classification Reports Corporations Do Not Have the Necessary Technology to Manage the Information Explosion
Businesses are at the tipping point—information is now an impediment to efficient business and a major compliance and governance risk.
The Council for Information Auto-Classification (CIAC) conducted a survey of business, legal, IT, compliance, professionals and records managers and found that 74% of organizations continue to depend on individuals to manually comply with legal, regulatory, and record management requirements. Given the projected growth and the inability of employees to manually manage information, organizations need to start automating the tasks associated with classifying, managing, and disposing of information assets. CIAC concludes that “big data” is overwhelming organizations. Information volumes have become a detriment to business and are not managing the problem well.
Survey results are released today and can be found at The Information Explosion: How Organizations Are Dealing With It Survey Report.
