In this course, you'll learn how to apply your new knowledge through exercises in establishing information governance at ICO Corp. This blended learning course utilizes video presentations, audio explanations, articles, case studies, examples, stories, mini exams, and interactive lessons to help you get the most from your learning experience. We hope you enjoy this course as you learn the essentials of information governance.
