Information Governance and the Updated FRCP – Speed, Proportionality, Preservation and Ethical Challenges

Events February 4, 2016

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.

In this Session (2) we will learn how will the FRCP changes alter legal strategies in the discovery process and thus the information governance efforts necessary to support those strategies.
Mapping and categorizing data sets proactively will help information governance professionals identify and preserve potentially relevant information more quickly when the inevitable lawsuit ensues.
Defending the identification and preservation processes will depend on effective information governance disciplines while preparing for litigation.
Navigating potential ethical challenges with regard to advice on data retention and disposition in light of the updated Rules.
