About Information Awareness Month

The purpose of Information Awareness Month (IAM) is to increase public awareness of information and its place in all aspects of daily life.  By focusing attention at a number of events during the month of May on the role that information plays in day to day activities, the value of good information practices and policies are highlighted and promoted.

The theme for IAM 2016 is “ Investing in Information Governance”.
