The IGI’s Barclay T. Blair (Founder and Executive Director), Bennett B. Borden (Co-Founder and Chair), and Jay Brudz (General Counsel) will speak on December 2, 2014 from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM on the panel, “Powering Data-Driven Business Through Information Governance.”

Abstract

As we enter the era of Big Data and the promise that new analytics tools will help us extract profound insights about our businesses, personal lives, and the world around us, we also enter an era in which our data introduces lots of complexity and risk. Is there a downside to more data? Is all data of equal value? The panel will discuss how risk and value are opposite sides of the same information coin. To realize the full potential of our information, we must create an operational environment in which we have addressed the risk and removed the uncertainty created by mountains of data. Information governance (IG) is the approach that allows us to achieve this and to more effectively power data-driven business.

In addition, Barclay T. Blair will be chairing the second day of the conference.
