Trends Driving Information Governance Strategies in 2014
In 2013, many organizations successfully launched information governance initiatives, and saw positive progress from those efforts in attaining executive sponsorship, engaging key stakeholders, and executing pilot projects. As we enter 2014, new challenges emerge as organizations look for demonstrable business value amidst unrelenting challenges of information growth, regulatory compliance complexity, and legal discovery.
Join me and Robert A. Cruz as we assess these challenges and discuss what we can expect for Information Governance in 2014. The live webinar, presented by Proofpoint, is on January 23 at 11AM PST/ 2PM EST
I recently completed a webinar about defensible deletion with Anthony Diana of Mayer Brown, Katey Wood of Enterprise Strategy Group, and Stephen Stewart of Nuix. We had a good discussion focused on the role of inside council in supporting and driving efforts to get rid of unnecessary data. You can check out the recording here.
The blurb for the webinar is below:
For many years, organizations have kept all their data, often beyond the mandated retention period. But with data volumes growing to hundreds of terabytes – or even petabytes – this is no longer an option. The financial and time costs of maintaining storage systems for so much data are prohibitive. In addition, much of this data is unknown, posing significant business risks and adding to the time and expense of discovery or investigation exercises. Defensible deletion allows organizations to identify, categorize and manage all their data across multiple geographical locations, applications and storage and archive systems. With this knowledge, an organization can delete any data that has no business value or legal hold requirements. Deleting unneeded data allows organizations to reduce storage management costs, speed up discovery and investigations, switch off obsolete storage systems and tame the Big Data beast.
Join information governance thought leaders for a step-by-step guide to developing and implementing a defensible deletion program for your organization.
This session will discuss how you can:
- Make content-driven decisions to identify which data you can delete and which you must retain
- Create sound document retention, deletion and archiving policies
- Select a knowledgeable external counsel who can work with you to create and implement a defensible deletion process

Thanks to everyone who joined our information governance webinar on Thursday. Barry and I had fun go through the results of the joint ViaLumina and eDiscovery Journal 2011 Information Governance Survey. Judging by some of the questions, you found it valuable as well. Attendees to the webinar will get a complimentary copy of the survey report. Also, Barry and I will be continue to blog about results from the survey here and over at Barry’s blog.
I’ll let you know when the webinar recording is available, but in the meantime, here are some selected audio outtakes that I though you might enjoy.

Earlier this year, we ran an extensive survey about information governance with eDiscovery Journal, and the results are fascinating. Barry Murphy and I are going to talk about these results at a webinar today (Thursday September 15th), so stop by at 1 pm EDT. Register here.
