    Topic:              Putting Information Governance in Its Place

     Information governance creates a strategic framework that aligns information-related initiatives with an organization's mission.  It has quickly become the focus of records management attention in companies, government agencies, and other organizations, but its relationship to RIM remains confusing.  Is it a new field or a rebranding of well-established ideas, an evolved form of records management or a replacement for it?  This presentation will review the key characteristics of information governance, emphasizing its distinctive characteristics, its business justification, and its relationship to records management.  The session is based on content from the speaker's book Information Governance: Concepts, Requirements, Technology, which was published by ARMA International in 2016.


    Speaker:          William Saffady 

    William Saffady is an experienced records management and information governance consultant and researcher based in New York City.   He is the author of over three dozen books and many articles on records management, record retention, document storage and retrieval technologies, and other information management topics.  His latest book, Record Retention Requirements: A Guide to 100 Commonly-Encountered Record Series, will be published in January 2018 by ARMA International.
