On Tuesday, September 13, 2016, Donald Skupsky, JD, CRM, FAI, MIT, president of Information Requirements Clearinghouse, will present a webinar titled “Determining Who Manages Your Records and Data – The Legal Ramifications!”
Attendance is on a first-come-first-served basis and will begin at 12:00 pm MDT for one hour. This is part of our 2016 webinar series.
Overview: Historically records were managed by records managers and data was managed by information technology (or information systems). Records managers exercised some control over the rules for managing records and in some cases became very “hands on” during the records life cycle – records retention, file plans, record center operation, etc. In contrast, information technology never really “managed” data, but rather provided the environment – the networks and systems — that enabled departments to manage their own data, rarely provided any rules to data or personally rarely touched the data.
With the advent of information governance, organizations now want to manage all aspects of the organization’s information. Yet, litigation and regulatory requirements present many legal challenges and risks for failure to properly manage information. With information technology often taking the lead in information governance and records management striving to play a key role:
- Who should manage the records and data?
- Which discipline has the best orientation to ensure legal compliance and legal risk reduction?
- Or, will we see a new breed of information managers?
This session explores the legal ramifications related to who manages the information governance program.
