What Will You Learn at the 2017 CIGO Summit?

Since bursting onto the scene in 2015, the CIGO Summit, held this year in Chicago May 10-11, has worked to define the playbook of this critically emerging and ever-evolving C-level officer, dubbed the Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO), and how a person in this role plays a significant part in his/her company’s success.

As we move forward into the 2017 conference, we plan to take this event’s building momentum to new levels. There are many reasons to attend the 3rd annual CIGO conference, but the biggest is the acquisition of knowledge. Below are some of the speakers and the topics they will cover at this year’s summit.

1. Accounting for the Value of Information – Mark Milone – Boeing Company
Mark is the lead attorney advising Boeing’s Information & Analytics organization. Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace and defense contractor.

A major theme for the 2017 CIGO Summit is information accounting: how do we calculate the value, risk, and cost of information, and how do we use that insight to drive responsible and informed business decisions about the fate of our information?

We are privileged to have Mark come to our CIGO Summit and share his story about:
• The approach he is developing to valuing information and determining information risk and cost
• What he has learned so far on his journey at the world’s largest aerospace and defense contractor
• The leadership lessons he has learned on his journey that you can use as you move forward as an information leader

2. Information Management & Governance – Roman Coleman – Options Clearing Corporation
Roman V. Coleman is an attorney who has led and consulted on numerous engagements to deliver compliant technical solutions for records management, litigation readiness, e-discovery, data governance, master data management and information compliance programs with leading publicly traded companies: Zurich, Coca-Cola, GE Capital, SunTrust Banks, and CenturyLink.

Mr. Coleman’s legal, business optimization, process improvement, change management, and technical expertise are uniquely valuable to organizations facing complex information management and corporate governance issues.

3. Data Ethics and the CIGO – Bennett B. Borden – Drinker Biddle & Reath
With great power comes great responsibility. Increasingly, information leaders have access to an incredible array of data and tools for extracting insight from that data. This creates a new frontier for information leaders faced with deciding not about whether a particular use of data is compliant or "legal" but rather, whether it is ethical. How can information leaders avoid crossing the "creepy line?" What kinds of insights are available and how should CIGO use those insights in a way that provides value to their customers and their organization? Bennett will lead us on a discussion of these critical issues and we will learn from the experiences from the information leaders in the room.

Need a Reason to Attend the 2017 CIGO Summit? Well, Here Are Ten.

The CIGO Summit, held May 10-11 in Chicago, has defined the critical and emerging role of the Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO). In our third annual event, we will continue to drive into the details of what it means to be an information leader.

    1. Your Peers
      Nowhere else can you find a gathering of the people like those who come to the CIGO Summit – both those who control millions in IG budget and lead large teams and those information leaders who are just beginning their journey. Information leaders from the world’s leading companies (e.g., Walmart, Pfizer and MasterCard) help make the CIGO Summit what it is.


    1. Groundbreaking
      Much like the evolution of the CIO as a standalone role in the 1980s, we believe the CIGO is beginning to do that today. Come be a part of helping modern businesses redefine how their organizational information is managed, governed and deployed.


    1. Help Define a New Path
      The role of the CIGO is still very much being written. We focus on the cutting edge of information governance by helping to refine the role of the CIGO and deploy more of these new age executives into the marketplace.


    1. Stay Ahead of Your Competitors
      Due to the ever-developing nature of this information governance revolution, many companies are simply not up to speed. We help provide insight to gain a significant advantage over your competitors in the area of information governance knowledge and best practices.


    1. The Experience
      “The single most important industry event I have yet attended; densely packed with immediately useable approaches, methodologies and best practices; staffed by passionate and supremely experienced SMEs – both within and extraneous to the discipline – providing a 360-degree view of the imminent CIGO revolution; overall a grand slam. A definite repeat for next year!” – Richard Kessler, Executive Director Information Lifecycle Governance, Group Information Security Office UBS


    1. We Get to the Point
      If there is one thing we hate, it’s wasted time. It’s a resource that simply can’t be replaced. CIGO is jam-packed with useful and actionable knowledge pertaining to information governance. All this is packed into 1.5 fast-paced days.


    1. The Experts
      This year’s CIGO Summit features speakers like: Mark Milone of The Boeing Company, Aaron Murphy of McCormick & Co., Roman Coleman of The Options Clearing Corporation, Ajay Asthana of Pretium Analytics, Bennett B. Borden of Drinker, Biddle & Reath as well as many more. For a complete list of speakers, click here.


    1. The Depth
      As an interdisciplinary pursuit, there is so much to talk about in IG. Our fast-paced format allows us to cover a broad range of topics while drilling down on the ones that we believe are the most important for CIGOs in 2017, including information valuation, cybersecurity, and strategies for finding and building your IG team.


    1. The Location
      Every time we return to Chicago we are reminded what a beautiful city it truly is. And your fortieth floor conference space with floor-to-ceiling glass windows affords a view of that city that is second to none. CIGO Summit is easy to get to and in the heart of the action.


  1. The Trends
    There is no better way to keep pace with the legal, technological, political and economic trends that are affecting IG now and in the future than to sit together with the experts and your peers and hear what's on their minds.
