Three sessions will be presented on February 1:

George Orwell’s The Animal Farm and Prepping for Disaster: Are Your Information Assets Properly Protected? 
Consider the effects of Hurricanes Maria, Harvey, and Irma; and of earthquakes and hacks and breaches – all of these, and more, present real risks to your organization’s information assets. And your information is the lifeblood of critical business operations. In this session, the panelists will discuss how risk assessments and ranking risk should be applied in managing and protecting information assets. What are the hallmarks of vital records? How do you know if an information system is vital? What if the vital records and systems are stored in the cloud? And, most of all, what can we learn from George Orwell and the Animal Farm?
Speakers: Jason Stearns (BlackRock), Jeffrey C. Sharer (Akerman), Patsy Pritchett (AFLAC)

Making Disposition Defensible: The Tools You Need
Despite legal clarifications and advances in technology, organizations continue to struggle with hitting the delete button on their information assets. Sometimes this is due to fundamental misunderstandings of what is legally required. But, if most organizations are honest, they will concede that the reluctance to dispose of information results from lack of guidance and a proper policy framework. Information governance experts know that such reluctance presents risks to the organization that could be mitigated. This panel of experts will identify critical components of those mitigation efforts: necessary policies and procedures, clearly defined roles and accountability for the governance committee, collaborating with IT and legal during the process, and guidance for handling disposition when the decision to keep or destroy is unclear.
Speakers: John Jablonski (Gerber Ciano Kelly Brady LLP), John Isaza (Rimon)

Planning for Cloud Services
Gartner predicts that by 202, a “no cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no Internet” policy is today. In fact, many organizations have a “cloud first” policy. Every organization is expected to have a hybrid combination of in-house architecture and cloud-based services. They recognize the benefits of flexibility, cost efficiencies, and quick implementation of new technology. However, the risks posed by legal and security concerns are often ignored. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With planning, an organization can protect its cloud-based information and make sure the information is easily accessible, while meeting its ethical, legal, and compliance obligations. Our panel of experts will address critical aspects of the planning process and give “live from the trenches” tips for implementation success. Speakers: Galina Datskovsky (Vaporstream), Ron Hedges (Denton’s), Jeff Beard (attorney)
