    2016: Information Governance Challenges: Is your organization ready?

    Over the past two decades, the corporate world has witnessed dramatic proliferation in the volumes of, and storage capacity as to, data.  With advances in technology, changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, an unexpected ruling in a European high court about the Safe Harbor program, and the rapid advancement of the Internet of Things (IoT), entities of all shapes and sizes have become increasingly more aware (and terrified!) of potential data mishaps.

    Information governance programs can establish the standards and principles for managing information in all its formats and varieties.  ARMA International’s Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles® provide the solid foundation that helps to ensure organizations can conduct their business in effective and efficient ways while fulfilling their legal, regulatory and litigation obligations.

    This track explores these trends and the solutions that a robust information governance program can provide. Sessions will include strategies that ensure your organization can survive, and even thrive in this world of shifting obligations, resources and technologies.

    ARMA Session 3

    Incident Readiness: The Role of Information Governance in Mitigating Breach Exposure

    • Information breaches are increasingly common.  In today’s business environment, information is power, and those who control information have the most power.  Bad actors are incentivized to break in, or recruit insiders, to steal data – to sell identities on the black market, as hacktivists to make a socio-political statement, as disgruntled employees and customers to get back at a corporation they think wronged them.
    • In most of the recent high-profile data breaches, the bad actors were in the systems for a long time, acting unbeknownst to their victim and with little resistance; and the scope of the breaches were difficult to quickly ascertain.  Most security experts agree that perimeter security is important but isn’t near enough – so what else can we do?
    • In this session our expert panel will explore the relationship between Information Governance and Information Security and answer important questions such as:
