Control Information to Minimize Security, Privacy, Compliance and Discovery Risks

Control Your Content for Security, Privacy, and Compliance

As more information is created, more governance is needed—but enterprises struggle to adapt their outdated, underdeveloped information governance policies.

The new generation of OpenText Enterprise Content Management (ECM) provides more control of both structured and unstructured information than ever before, providing transparent, enterprise-wide information governance for industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance.

According to an Industry Watch report from AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management), 70% of respondents to a recent survey agree that the biggest problem with information governance policies is enforcing them. Meanwhile, 45% say they are considering implementing an ECM or Electronics Record Management (ERM) solution to replace file-shares as part of their information governance strategy. The report's title says it all: Information Governance: Too Important to Be Left to Humans.

One organization that is using ECM the right way is Central Hudson, a gas and electric utility company. Central Hudson uses the permissions features in OpenText™ Content Suite to provide the right people with editing privileges, and uses the audit trail provided to improve collaboration. In addition to improving the flow of information across the organization, this has helped improve compliance with industry regulations and reduced risk.

ECM in Action

“We have improved on people’s work day because they can find documents so much easier and they are confident there’s one version of the truth.”

— Vicki Wheeler, Senior Director of IT for Central Hudson
