Overcoming IG-Related Post-Election Stress Disorder

 

Can’t sleep.
Can’t sit still.
Can’t concentrate.

No doubt about it, I have Post-Election Stress Disorder (PESD).

  • I worry what any new policies will mean for my clients, especially those in highly-regulated industries (e.g., utilities).
  • I worry their concerns about the economy will lead to short-sighted decisions regarding long-term programs (like information governance).
  • I worry they’ll become defensive and withdrawn as any new directives require a distinct change in philosophy (e.g., more or less transparency during audits).

I beg you: put down the chalupa, back away from the ledge, and don’t worry, be happy. Whether your candidate won or lost, our IG-related PESD is nothing we can’t handle – together.
