I L T A W H I T E P A P E R | I N F O R M A T I O N G O V E R N E N C E 4 F irst and foremost, thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the Information Governance (IG) survey. We realize that the survey was somewhat long, and appreciate the time taken from your busy schedules to contribute. This is the first comprehensive IG survey in ILTA history. The last survey on what would now be considered IG was ILTA's Data Retention Survey conducted in April 2009. In 2012, the Law Firm Information Governance Symposium (LFIGS), largely comprised of ILTA members, released their inaugural report, "A Proposed Law Firm Information Governance Framework," - bringing IG to the law firm collective consciousness. Given the limited scope of ILTA's last survey, and an overall increase in awareness of IG, this survey stands alone. Some notable results of the survey: • It seems surprising that nearly 54% of the respondents said they did not have a defined IG program, and in most organizations (69%), records and IG are not separate. • 75% of respondents indicated that their IG and security functions are aligned, and the vast majority of IG functions (39%) report to the CIO, followed by the General Counsel and/or Compliance office.
