April Event: "Embrace Information Governance - The Time is Now!"

ARMA Boston is pleased to announce our April 17 meeting, "Embrace Information Governance - The Time is Now!" 

Summary: Information Governance is more than just a new “buzz” word for records management. Good governance requires good record keeping. However, records management is only the foundation and a starting point. Information is stored everywhere and it needs to be controlled and managed. It’s not enough to manage just “records”, organizations must manage all its information regardless of where it is stored, regardless of medium and whether it is a records or not.

Information Governance is a strategic discipline that requires RIM professionals to think outside the box and expand their thinking beyond just managing records. A truly holistic and comprehensive view is needed. 

By attending this presentation you will learn how to help your organization in the following four (4) ways:
1.    Manage information risk and ensure compliance with business requirements.
2.    Develop an IG strategic plan and framework that works
3.    Gain control of information and optimize its value
4.    Reduce cost by disposing of information when it’s no longer needed
