The Organization of Legal Professionals (OLP) announces the launch of their new Information Governance Certificate program. The 11-week course, which begins October 1st, focuses on the creation of an effective information governance leader to meet the needs of today’s law firms. Courses focus on practical application skills to interactive scenarios in an interactive, web-based, live simulation environment.

Designed and developed by a leading industry professional, OLP’s online Information Governance Program will provide intensive training that can be applied in a traditional or progressive law firm or in-house legal environment.

Program highlights include:

  •     Analysis of relevant Information Governance principles, preservation, collection, cost controls and early assessment of records.
  •     A comprehensive study of Information Governance systems including common system architecture, storage protocols and its relationship to information management.
  •     Practical instruction on projects most likely to be assigned.

Chere Estrin, President and co-founder of OLP, states, “Our new Information Governance Certificate program is designed to address the critical issues that have evolved with the rapid growth and distribution of electronic data.” Estrin adds, “The world has come a long way from the days when companies stored all of their sensitive information in file cabinets or in boxes sent to some off-site storage facility. Now, in this electronic age, information is everywhere – content management systems, desktop computers, laptop computers and mobile devices, cloud-based services, program applications, emails and instant messaging systems, social media platforms, and the list goes on and on. Information governance is a huge challenge for law firms, and for all businesses, and many just do not have the necessary policies and procedures in place to manage the plethora of electronic data they are faced with. This has exposed companies to enormous risks and can make their electronic data open to investigation and used as evidence in criminal and civil litigation cases. Individuals that take our program will be given the skills to design, implement and manage an information governance program for any law firm or, if they are an eDiscovery professional, our program will give them the tools to successfully find and analyze electronic data involved in the cases they work on.”

Allen Brody, Director and general counsel of OLP, states “Our Information Governance Certificate Program helps to fill an ever-increasing demand that law firms face in finding talented professionals that understand the complex technologies that have evolved with the distribution and storage of electronic information.” Continues Brody, “This program is the perfect complement to our other eDiscovery certificate programs, as well as our CeDP Certification program.”

OLP’s 11-week Information Governance Certificate Program will begin October 1, 2013 and end December 10, 2013. For more information, visit http://www.theolp.org/ or email info(at)theolp(dot)org.
