I’m currently enrolled in a PhD in Information Technology at the University of the Cumberlands. One of the six core courses that make up the 60 credits in the program is on the subject of information governance. This covers the practices, policies and procedures involved in creating, storing and using data in organizations.
Each UC PhD course is an accelerated 8 weeks. The courses require you to read several articles, often participate in a discussion board and then to write a number of papers. It’s hard to summarize the content as it is broad and covers of a number of topics but here is some of the information captured in each week
- Week 1: Introduction to Information Governance
- Week 2: Policies and Procedures, and Cybersecurity Governance
- Week 3: E-Discovery and Blockchain
- Week 4: Privacy Rights
- Week 5: Social Media and Information Governance
- Week 6: Data Deduplication and Dark Data
- Week 7: Digital Preservation and Forensics
- Week 8: Healthcare Data Management
This is a good course and very important in large organizations that are producing large amounts of data and need to manage it carefully.
This is the last course of the year. Once I finish it, I’ll begin a new set of courses in 2024!
