Washington, D.C., of counsel Jason R. Baron authored an article for Ethical Boardroom titled “Looking Into the Crystal Ball,” outlining his predictions on what corporate information governance (IG) issues will loom large in the coming year.
Jason predicts the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation will drive greater attention to IG, given the prospect of ongoing audits and fines for noncompliance with key privacy provisions. He adds that data breaches will continue to occur at a regular interval in 2018, and that board members should expand their cyber-mandates to examine the storage of legacy data. Jason also predicts the internet of things will have an increasing impact on the IG landscape as connected data devices continue to stream data from every corner of the globe.
