Drinker Biddle recognizes that information governance is an integral part of corporate governance and risk management. We understand that skillfully governing a business includes skillfully governing its information, leveraging that information for best use, and avoiding the risks excess information can create. What distinguishes information governance from mere information management is that it determines why a business creates and utilizes information, not simply how. When a business knows why it creates and uses information, it can leverage that information for its best use and minimize the risks inherent with the over-retention of data.



We live in an era of Internet-scale enterprise infrastructure, powerful analytical tools, and massive data sets from which we can potentially wring profound new insights about business, society, and ourselves. This is an era of unprecedented scrutiny from courts and regulators, an era where the difference between the winners and losers is mastery of information.
