InfoGov: Getting Your Data House in Order to Avoid Litigation Costs and Risk

    Is your organization digging a “dark data” grave – one that is being filled with business information that will never be used again but is threatening financial and security risks?

    An effective information governance (IG) program can help mitigate those risks – and the Electronic Discovery Institute and ARMA International are partnering to help you learn how to develop or improve one.

    With a variety of sessions focused on showing you how to avoid over-preservation and understand the nuances of document production, teaching you about the newest solutions, and presenting real-world case studies, this one-day program will provide what you need to get your data house in order, seal up that grave, and avoid costly litigation.
