Article 1: Information Governance Primer for In-House Counsel
Sponsored by Contoural
“This InfoPAK is a primer for
in-house counsel starting, building, executing, and refining an Information
Governance program. It explains why companies are launching these programs, how
to develop an IG committee, key steps in creating a business case and how to
develop a program roadmap.It also addresses specific Information Governance
areas, such as updating a record retention schedule, creating a data security
policy, developing a proactive litigation readiness program, as well as
objectively measuring the effectiveness of these areas.”
Article 2: Checklist: Who Should Be Brought to the Table To
Implement IG in Your Corporation by Jason R. Baron, Of Counsel,
Drinker Biddle & Reath, LLP
“The promise of implementing a
solid IG program is in the opportunity it provides for both in-house and
outside counsel to apply their legal expertise to initiatives that can
transform an organization’s business, while still complying with complex legal
and regulatory requirements. In-house counsel has an important role
to play in championing the idea of having a uniform, coherent approach to IG –
one that weaves together corporate policies and procedures touching on data,
information and records.”
