The article discusses planning for dealing with key information risks in an organization. Decentralization of data in an roganization has led to risk exposure of confidential data, a challenge which needs to be dealt with very carefully. In addition, the current regulations and legal practices that assume records are discrete, bounded, stand-alone objects also require an organization to know the location of all its records. An organization needs to keep an eye on the pace of technology in order to safeguard its data against various threats.
