The Information Governance Institute, a community of IG professionals dedicated to advancing the adoption of IG practices and technologies, is a great resource for students interested in learning more about this emerged professional trend. By creating a user account, students can fully access articles, annual reports, and other resources, and even participate in the larger organizational conversation.

In the 2015-2016 annual report, IGI published an updated version of their infographic “The Facets of IG: IG Serves a Coordinating Function” (featured below). It provides a comprehensive look at the knowledge areas involved in an information governance program. You will note that Records and Information Management, and Information Security and Protection (core areas of the MARA program) top the list.
