You must be able to “show your work” or the logic behind your retention rules and schedule in order for deletion to be defensible - Robert Fowler, CIPP/US - Jordan Lawrence”
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
Jordan Lawrence, the leading provider of records management and information governance solutions and long-time Association of Corporate Counsel Alliance Partner, today announced they will be participating in two CLE events, Defensibly Downsizing Your Data: Where to Start with Records Retention and Maintaining Compliance. The lunch programs will be hosted by the ACC Chicago Chapter and will be held at Gibson's Steakhouse in Oak Brook, Illinois Wednesday, August 12th and at Barnes & Thornburg's downtown office on August 13th.
Companies are buried by gargantuan amounts of records and information and it's growing at uncontrollable rates. Soaring e-discovery costs, legal and compliance risks and the high price tag for IT to store, manage and search through massive amounts of information has propelled records retention from the back burner to a red-hot issue - for both legal and IT.
This session will cover:
- Evaluating the legal and business issues caused by retaining too much information
- Best practices for developing a retention policy for all records and information
- Cleaning up the mess and developing an ongoing strategy for new data
- Overcoming the cultural challenges
- Selling sound information governance within your business organization
The panel will include Robert Fowler, CIPP/US Director of Professional Services at Jordan Lawrence, Ann Grayson, Partner at Barnes & Thornburg, Sean Rahilly, Chief Compliance Officer at Enova International and Therese King Nohos, Sr. Legal Counsel from DeVry Education.
They will share how to evaluate the legal and business issues caused by retaining too much information, best practices for developing a retention policy for all records and information, cleaning up the mess and developing an ongoing strategy for new data, overcoming the cultural challenges and selling sound information governance within your business organization.
