November presentation details: Information Governance is a huge topic today in every field of business. In the legal realm, we have seen our clients become more concerned about how we protect the information (in both electronic and traditional form) that they have entrusted to our firm. These concerns were being expressed in the RFPs and Outside Council Guidelines of potential clients, and we saw that winning their business could be directly related to how we cared for their information. We needed to understand what information we had, what value it had, and all the possible places where it could reside. An Information Governance program is what we needed. This is a look at our real-world challenges, successes and what we need to work on in our quest for IG.
