Presentation:  Strategize Your Information


All companies and organizations need to strategically manage their business information.  Knowing what they have, where it is located, how it is used – or not used and what happens to it is critical for companies to be productive, profitable, secure and compliant.  Strategy is essential.  This presentation provides the basic building blocks needed to develop an information strategy.

Presentation:  Start Treating Your Information Like the Business Asset It Is


Your organization’s information is a business asset, with both a risk and value side to it.  Any decision you make about what to do with your information—delete, migrate, share, mine it, etc.—implicates this dual nature.  The right balance between risk and value needs to fit your specific organization, and ultimately the decisions you make about what to do with your information are business decisions.  Getting your legal house in order is a critical first step.  This session will discuss how ensuring that you understand your legal and regulatory obligations and are governing your information effectively to meet them can facilitate all of the decisions your make about how to handle your information.

Presentation:  It’s 2 am:  Do You Know Where Your Information Is?


More information has been created in the last ten years than in the preceding 100,000 years - and the pace continues to increase.  At the same time, we're trusting that we'll be able to access that information anytime, anywhere, from any device.  But do you really know where your information is?  In this session, we'll discuss where enterprise information lives, what happens when it escapes, and how to manage it more effectively.
