TITLE: "Standing Up Information Governance in State Government: A Case Study"

OVERVIEW: In 2021 the Texas Legislature required state agencies to implement a data management program to oversee data assets. To comply, Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) convened an information governance council to manage its data assets as part of its newly created information governance strategy.

The presenters will discuss their successes, challenges, and lessons learned after 2 years transitioning TSLAC to an information governance approach to managing data, information, and records, and future plans to model this program for other state agencies and local governments. This webinar introduces information governance from the presenter's practical experience, implementing the approach to revise active agency policies and procedures. They will highlight the importance of records management as a stakeholder group for effective information governance, and explain key concepts such as information governance, data governance, and data management maturity model in the context of modifying an organization’s approach to information instead of theoretically. 

Webinar attendees will come away from this presentation with an understanding of what information governance is and how it differs from data governance and the purpose and role of an information governance council.
