It includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information to enable an organization to achieve its goals. Information governance should be an element in planning an enterprise's information architecture.

Federal Judiciary Approves Civil Discovery Rules Changes

By Zoe Tillman
Federal judiciary officials on Tuesday approved proposed changes to court rules that could reshape how discovery is handled in civil litigation—for better or for worse, depending who you ask.
The Judicial Conference of the United States, the judiciary’s policymaking body, adopted the amendments during its biannual, closed-door meeting on Tuesday. The rules will go to the U.S. Supreme Court for consideration. If the high court approves the changes, they’ll take effect Dec. 1, 2015, unless Congress steps in to oppose the amendments or to make adjustments.
