[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]While you may agree that information governance is important—from managing risks to maximizing the value of your information assets—it’s hard to know where to get started. If your entity is new to IG, how do you even begin to set up an effective IG program?

Join Barclay T. Blair (IGI Founder and Executive Director) and Mary Mack (Enterprise Technology Counsel for ZyLAB) for the webinar, Information Governance – The First Step, to get some practical guidance on getting started with your first IG project, including how to sell it to the appropriate stakeholders. This one-hour webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 10:00 am PST/12:00 pm CST/1:00 pm EST. The program is approved for one hour of CA CLE credit. It is hosted by the Organization of Legal Professionals (OLP) and is free to OLP members. To learn more and to register, click here. The webinar is the second in a two-part series on information governance by ZyLAB, an IGI Charter Supporter.

The first webinar in the series, Information Governance: Why Corporations Need It, held on May 8, 2014, discussed the Information Governance Initiative and why IG programs are important.


“The reality here is that the direst problems that we face and the great opportunities we have around information will not be solved or available to us without very senior level vision and support. While a lot of the pain is maybe felt down in the trenches of inattention to information. Certainly, there are well publicized and well known occasions where that pain very rapidly becomes something that engulfs the CEO as we just saw with Target with their leader stepping down over a data breach. And of course, we can open the paper probably on any day and see evidence of that. What we are kind of mystified by is how, despite all of these high profile instances, is how the management of information has yet to really take hold as a discipline that is owned from the top down,” remarked Barclay.
