Karen S. Knight, CCEP

Principal Consultant, Cohasset Associates
Many organizations are considering a re-alignment of their information management-related practices, making the move from Records and Information Management (RIM) to Information Governance (IG). Typical challenges to this move include entrenched corporate culture, perceived “empire building”, and conflicting business priorities. This address will provide the means to overcome obstacles while building a case for IG.

Advancing IG from RIM…the TRANSFORMATION

Karen S. Knight, CCEP 

During late 2016, Cohasset partnered with ARMA to conduct their ninth biennial survey, examining Records and Information Management (RIM), and more recently, its advancement to Information Governance (IG). This session will provide first-hand analyses of the survey results, detailing up-to-date, authoritative benchmarking metrics on information lifecycle management means and methods, emphasizing electronically stored information.

Joseph H. Carpenter IV, Esq, Norfolk Southern Corp.

Information Governance is a multi-faceted practice area that includes records management, e-discovery, and other technical and legal elements.  Mr. Carpenter will explore this developing subject matter to evaluate how proper practices can increase business efficiency, reduce cost, and limit risk.  The discussion will include commentary on the role that technology has played in evolving the Information Governance space into a broad-based business strategy.  The presentation will also review the development of Norfolk Southern’s Information Governance program with particular emphasis on e-discovery fundamentals.

2:15 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. - The Internet of Things, Information Governance, Data Analytics, and the Records Managers’ Changing Role

Linda G. Sharp, Esq, ZL Technologies

Information Governance takes a team approach. Records Managers are a critical part of the process. This session will discuss how records managers ensure that they are not only part of the process, but are positioned to drive the initiative as big data, data analytics and the Internet of Things change the dynamics of information.
