Information Management 

Enhancing capabilities in governance and management


KPMG’s Information Management practice provides capability assessments, policy and procedure development, technology identification and implementation support and cultural transformation.

How we help

Our team of professionals is comprised of lawyers, IT professionals, information and project managers and certified examiners to support organizations with both information governance reference models (IGRM) and electronic discovery reference models (EDRM). We can help with the preventive stages of information management to the presentation of evidence in the course of litigation. Our team can leverage technology, policy, process and training to help reduce the risk, burden and costs related to the lack of information management framework which characterizes many organizations during this transitory phase from paper to electronic documents.

 Privacy and Canadian anti-spam legislation (CASL)


Privacy is a crucial social value. As public awareness and sensitivity on the topic is rising, so is the number and complexity of the legal and regulatory  risks organizations are currently facing including: cloud computing, outsourcing of business functions, anti-spam legislation, use of personal electronic devices in a professional context, new and emerging technologies.


Our Privacy/CASL services can help facilitate sustainable organization-wide compliance through stakeholder engagement, governance, technical alignment and operational control effectiveness.
