What’s the easiest way to move information governance projects forward? Why do information governance initiatives fail, anyway? And what exactly is a data scientist or a data ethicist? What about a CIGO?
These questions and a host of others will be answered at the 2015 Information Governance Conference (InfoGovCon), a three-day event hosted by the IGI that we hope you will attend. The conference, which will be held from Sept. 29–Oct. 1 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, will feature a variety of information governance leaders from across all industries, as well as a slew of IG practitioners (and those who want to get started) much like yourself.
Though the conference’s agenda is jam-packed, attendees are able to choose their own educational tracks each day, selecting the sessions they find most helpful for their particular situations.
According to one attendee of last year’s conference, Robert J. Ridgway of the Mohegan Tribe of Indians, all organizations concerned about information security, records management, or making IG progress should consider heading to Hartford. He said his organization was able to get to work on IG right away after attending the event last year.
“Without the insights and experiences of the InfoGovCon professionals, we would still be on the sidelines waiting for someone to say, ‘do something!’” Ridgway explains.
The conference includes a mix of breakout sessions, exhibits, networking time, and even a “data art gallery,” among other things. There are also a bunch of major speakers, including:
- Aaron Crews, Senior Associate General Counsel & Global Head of eDiscovery at Walmart
- Richard P. Kessler, Executive Director and Head of Group Information Governance, IT Contracting and Shared Services Legal at UBS
- Jeffrey D. Bridges, Director of Information Governance at Boehringer Ingelheim USA
- Jessica Harman, Records & Information Management Supervisor at Phillips 66
- Jeff Kosseff, Assistant Professor of Cybersecurity Law at the United States Naval Academy
- Russel M. Walters, Ph.D., Research Associate Director and a fellow at Johnson & Johnson
