Antonio Rega, Scott Giordano, David N Yerich

Annually 12-15% of employees leave their companies. What role does records management play in securing corporate data accessible to these employees?

Attend this session to learn about the intersection of information governance best practices, e-discovery requirements, and records management necessities for dynamic corporate environments.

This program presents a case study of GAO's comprehensive disposition strategy for records across multiple agency platforms in the age of big data.

CF13-9976 How to Establish and Sustain a Records Coordinator Community
Susan Cisco, Leslie Fisher, Parminder Sandhu, Lisa Shimamura, Susan Trombley

Organizations that are successful in achieving records management compliance across all media have expanded the traditional Records Coordinator role from a focus on physical records to coordinating cleanup events and applying retention and disposition to electronic information as well. Join this interactive panel discussion to hear lessons learned by four global and U.S.-based organizations in establishing and sustaining their Records Coordinator communities and how to apply them to your own organization.

CF14-4024 Releasing the Legal Hold: How to Return to Normal
Wendy W. McLain, John J. Isaza, Stephanie McCutcheon

Organizations are aware of the importance of a defensible legal hold process and therefore spend a lot of time on the front-end tasks. Consequently, sometimes not enough time and attention are given to the proper release of a legal hold and the subsequent return to routine retention practices. In this session, the expert panel will draw from actual experience and lessons learned to discuss the best practices for this final step in the legal hold process. 


CF14-4046 Essential Elements of Successful SharePoint® Records Management Solutions
Graham Sibley

If you haven't been in the middle of a failed SharePoint implementation, then you've probably heard horror stories of one. Too often, organizations believe it's enough to port traditional RIM concepts in a SharePoint implementation without considering the changes in user behavior that SharePoint inevitably brings. In this session, you'll learn about the four elements of a successful SharePoint implementation, as well as strategies and metrics that will help ensure the solution enhances user adoption, satisfaction, and productivity.

CF13-3433 21st Century Best Practices for Information Governance

This session will team the former intellectual property counsel at Wal-Mart with an information governance expert to discuss 21st-century best practices for RIM policies and procedures. You will learn from real-world case studies about how to shed outdated policies and take on new approaches to best harness records and information across the enterprise. 


CF14-4017 Which Certifications Are Right For You?
Susan K. Goodman

You will walk away with a better understanding of which professional certifications are best for your career. 


CF15-4248 Succeeding with Rules-Based Electronic Records Management
Bruce Miller

Defensible control of our electronic records continues to be elusive. Many solutions are too complicated, too costly, or too burdensome. In this session, you'll learn how to achieve defensible control through rules-based recordkeeping (RBR), which is a combination of technology and technique that requires no exotic technology, is relatively easy to learn, and works for most records. Because declaration and classification can be fully automated with RBR, you can ensure the right documents are collected, classified, and declared, with minimal reliance on end users. Any RIM professional can learn the techniques and apply them to any corporate system that supports RBR. 


CF15-4423 Implementing Effective Records Management Audits
Christina M. Torres

Implementing a records management program is only half the equation – measuring its success is the other half. In this session you will discover successful strategies for designing program controls and audit processes for your records management program. You will learn to develop a program audit framework, including how to determine the right metrics to measure, vehicles for collecting relevant data, data sampling techniques, how to identify whom to audit, managing the data collection process, and interpreting the results.
