Law Firms: Where Do You Stand on Information Governance?

I'd like to share a timely Legaltech News article focused on a presentation given at the current ILATACON 2015 conference in Las Vegas. David Vickers of ARMA International told a standing room only crowd that today it is critical for law firms to offer clients proof on where they stand with the maturity of their information governance (IG) strategies and practices. I thought two topics were especially pertinent: the importance of assessments as a foundation for effective IG programs and how the traditional records management model has evolved into today’s IG model with an orientation that is more strategic, situational and compliance-focused. Successful implementation of the new model also requires the support and sponsorship of the law firm’s senior partners and leaders, Vickers points out.
On the topic of IG, we recently hosted a webcast on how law firms and corporate legal departments can implement a framework for evolving recordkeeping activities into a more comprehensive information governance program. View the webcast.
