Re-examining the Ethics of Information Governance in a Time of Rapid Change (141)

There are many reasons for organizations to care about information governance and records management: enhancing employee productivity; improving data quality and process integration; preventing data breaches; and reducing risk exposure. And they are all important. But on a personal level, WHY do we choose to do what we do? Why did we choose this unusual career in information governance? What kinds of choices do we need consider in making not just required IG decisions, but ethical ones? And how do these questions change when technologies are changing so rapidly. In this session, we’ll use the world of generative AI (ChatGPT and Bard) in an interactive session to think about the kinds of complex ethical decisions we now face.

Speaker: John Mancini.

RIM Lining Up With IT, Risk and Security – A New World of IG (142 ABC)

This could be the road to a higher level of corporate appreciation for RIM. Information management Risk is right down our alley.

Speakers: Nicholas Fonseca; Rick Stirling, President, WesternIM.

1:55 PM – 2:25 PM EDT

Data Retention and eDiscovery Costs and Risks: Third Party Repositories and Purview Integration, presented by Archive360 (140 DE)

Organizations create, consume, and share enormous volumes of data. Legacy methods that rely on siloed and disconnected solutions hinder the ability to maintain consistent oversight across data, records, and electronic evidence. This increases costs and risks associated with compliance, regulatory requests, and eDiscovery. Providing a unified data governance platform that supports retention management with eDiscovery capabilities ensures smoother, more efficient responses to investigations and information demands while delivering more consistent practices.

In this session, you will learn how to…

  • Govern data of different source types, in diverse formats, and across multiple compliance obligations to minimize risk, enhance search performance, and optimize cost management.
  • Explore the Advantages and Disadvantages of In-Place Data Management vs. a Unified Governance Platform.
  • Maximize Archive360 Integration Within Purview for Simplified eDiscovery.

Speaker: Gabriel Bustos, Senior Product Manager, Archive360

2:30 PM – 3:30 PM EDT

Information Governance In A Totally Connected World: RIM For IoT (250 BC)

We live in a totally connect world. From personal devices, to cars, to smart houses, more data than ever is being collected and analyzed to make decisions that affect our daily work and personal lives. This session will explore the challenges presented for information governance and eDiscovery presented by the emergence of tens of billions of connected devices commonly known as the Internet of Things (“IoT”).

Speakers: Cheryl Strom, Records Information Sr. Manager, McDonald’s Corporation; Lisa Lukaszewski; Cricket Wood.

3:00 PM – 3:45 PM EDT

Confident Information Governance in the Age of Generative AI and Manipulated Media (140 FG)

Models like ChatGPT, DALL-E, Bard, Midjourney, and StyleGAN are all recent tools that enable the automated generation of content – text, images, audio and even video – via artificial intelligence (AI). Broad adoption of such technologies has resulted in an explosion of AI-produced material that makes it challenging to understand the provenance and authenticity of online media. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has developed tools and techniques to help individuals and organizations identify manipulated media, describe how it was produced, and characterize the intent behind its production. These technologies stand to enhance the practice of information governance by assisting in the development of policies, standards, processes, metrics, and roles that respond to the evolving reality of generative AI and manipulated media.

Speaker: Wil Corvey, Program Manager, DARPA.

3:45 PM – 4:45 PM EDT

California Dreaming Deep Dive: The CPRA Is Now Live, What Does It Mean For RIM and Information Governance? (250 BC)

Speakers: Martin Tully, Partner, Redgrave LLP; Mathea Bulander.

4:00 PM – 4:45 PM EDT

You Be The Judge- E-Discovery 2023! (141)
