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.
