Controlling Electronic Discovery Cost Through Collaboration
ARMA International Hosts Conference in June
E-Discovery and Beyond: Harnessing the Power of Collaboration

KANSAS CITY, MO—As organizations continue to grapple with ways to gain control over the escalating cost of electronic-discovery, records and information management has found unprecedented prominence in the board room. But e-discovery is a symptom of a bigger corporate challenge: how do we go about controlling email and other forms of electronically stored information? The answer lies in improving collaboration among managers and eliminating counterproductive silos in business today. Through collaboration your organization will be able to manage records and information better, give you a competitive advantage, and prepare you for the perils of e-discovery. ARMA International has answers at their first annual conference, “E-Discovery and Beyond: Harnessing the Power of Collaboration,” June 25-26 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The conference will explore many dimensions of collaboration and show how it can contribute to organizational performance and control e-discovery. Improved collaboration requires some an organizational change, and it is vital to have the Records and Information Management (RIM), Legal, Compliance, IT, and business units working together in order to comply with regulations, respond to litigation, and make better business decisions. Managers across all these areas of corporate governance are essential for a good information management program, and are encouraged to take advantage of this educational opportunity by attending together as a team.

Attendees will hear from experts at Lehman Brothers, Cargill, Booz Allen Hamilton, Fulbright & Jaworski, K&L Gates, Applied Discovery, Lexakos, Global Cyber Risk, Redgrave Daley Ragan & Wagner, The Glenmont Group, and more. Among topics covered will be the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, e-discovery management, records access and security, and enterprise content management. Speakers will also discuss steps to integrate a RIM program into existing organizational processes, how to train and cultivate new RIM leaders, and how to create a secure, compliant infrastructure. The conference will feature a keynote address from Rick Wolf, founder of the consulting firm Lexakos, and former head of compliance for Cendant Corporation.

E-Discovery and Beyond: Harnessing the Power of Collaboration will take place at the Kansas City Airport Marriott June 25-26, 2007. Space is limited so register yourself or your teams today!

One Response

  1. I would like to introduce one website which I recently discovered a very good regulatory compliance website which provides all the useful information regarding ISO17799, SOX, etc and also provides good information about other regulatory compliance authorities such as HIPAA, ISO 17799, OSHA, FISMA, etc. Also this website provides a regulatory compliance tool from Symantec which is a very useful tool for complying with regulations like SOX HIPAA, ISO 17799, etc. This poster is crosswalk between: ISO 17799, COBIT 4.0, Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, Payment Card Industry (PCI), GLBA, NERC standards CIP and PIPEDA (Canada)
