Session 1:  So Many Standards and Very Few Best Practices

There are many good theories and standards on how to implement Information Governance. However, the reality of putting it into practice is vastly different. D Madrid will share best practices learned through personal experience in implementing Information Governance.

Session 2:  Evaluate your Records Management Program by Applying Principles Found in the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

This session will explore the underscoring principles of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), draw links between GDPR and the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles, and provide examples of how companies are using GDPR to elevate the stature and remit of their RIM programs.

Session 3:  Accept It, Adopt It, Reject It or Fight It – the Underlying Generational Differences Behind Technology and Data Change

This session will explore the sometimes obvious and not so overt differences in how various generations perceive and handle changes to technology or data.  Understanding the “people side of change” can help you, your team and organization better execute and see long-term results.

Session 4:  Change Management vs. Change Leadership

There is a difference between leading change and managing change. Knowing the difference will impact your implementation of Information Governance. Join D Madrid, one of the trail blazers of the Information Governance profession, for an informative session and change your perspective on change.

Session 5: The Data Governance Crisis – Real or Perceived?

The recent series of data breaches and the underlying reasons for the incidents – cause concerns regarding corporations lack of capacity, budget, or managerial support – to maintain and support secure infrastructure with data that is required by law to be protected. This presentation addresses recent data compromises, and then covers some of the consequences for us as individuals, as well as within our roles in corporations. There is a critical need for security advocates in each organization.
