What is ‘Information in Bloom’?

Originally branded through the metaphor of “growing and tending to your data” Information In Bloom Management Services (IiBMS), is a freelance consultancy offering time-saving and certified expertise in privacy, information governance, and data management. Through assessment of organizational objectives against auditing of existing practices, owner Victoria McIntosh develops strategies, policies, procedures and other documentation for solid information and data foundations. Communicating between business objectives, technology needs and team operations requirements, IiBMS Services emphasizes improving control of information and data for better quality, efficiency, and accountability.

Personally identifiable data, like the humans who generate it, is a dynamic, challenging asset that requires routine care combined with adaptable practices against changing environments. Our specialty is developing practices that improve the quality of data and minimize customer (and organizational) risk, to get compliance and growth out of even the most stubborn information sources.

Why Information Management or Data Governance?

Information management and data governance are the strategic direction of resources, systems and knowledge within an organization. Information governance focus on laying out the plan for whom is in charge of decision-making and performing actions that affect the control information quality, while information management sets out the tactics for how actions are enforced. Data governance and data management operates in a similar manner, but with emphasis on raw data or database resources, which may have particular challenges or requirements as oppose to solid documents and curated content. 

By exercising control over how information and data is acquired, communicated, employed and disposed of, corporations can promote harmony between programs and people. Information management and data governance are used to reduce spending and maximize efficiency by making data easier to access for those that need it while ensuring safeguards against outsider intervention, by improving the quality of intelligence holdings as they relate to business needs, and by keeping knowledge in the hands of the organization regardless of staff turnover.

What about Privacy?

Information management and data governance are a foundational part of proper privacy protections and I.T. security planning. For more details, see our privacy services
