What is Information Governance (IG)?
ARMA International defines information governance as a strategic, cross-disciplinary framework composed of standards, processes, roles, and metrics that hold organizations and individuals accountable for the proper handling of information assets. The framework helps organizations achieve business objectives, facilitates compliance with external requirements, and minimizes risk posed by substandard information handling practices. Records and information management (RIM) is an essential building block of an information governance program.
An Information Governance Professional (IGP) is...
...a person who has earned ARMA's IG certification that demonstrates he or she has the strategic perspective and the requisite knowledge to help an organization leverage information for maximum value while reducing the costs and mitigating the risks associated with using and governing this important asset.
Mission of the Information Governance Professional (IGP) Certification Program:
Provide an information governance credential within an ethical and professional framework to support individuals to deliver organizational value and reduce risk.
IGP Governance Board
The IGP program is governed by the IGP Governance Board, which is incorporated separately from ARMA International. This board guides the certification program, provides outreach to the profession, and clearly separates the functions and decisions related to certification from other ARMA International programs and goals.
