Techopedia Explains Strategic Information Office

The staff members of a strategic information office are generally responsible for implementing compliance standards across an entire company. They are also typically tasked with information management and informing other departments about responsibilities and available innovations in information management (again, related to the industry that the company is in). Companies may also task the SIO with getting other departments more involved in initiatives and explaining to them the value and benefit of adopting better information management methods.
