I See IG Resources — One Video + One Podcast on Important IG, Security, Risk and Disposition Strategies

A few interesting IG related media resources to share today. First, a recorded webinar presentation from Christopher Egan at Akin Gump:

  • Information Governance for the Modern Age — Where Vision Meets Execution” — Chris Egan (Assistant General Counsel for Information Governance at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP) outlines his vision for modernizing law firm information governance, sharing insights from his firm’s journey to adapting policy, process and technology to deliver on that vision.

Next, from ILTA comes a podcast recording:

  • Disposition: Importance to Maintain a Modern Policy and Procedure” — Chuck Barth (Director of Information Governance at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP) reviews:
  • “The importance of records retention and disposition is even more acute now that we are in a time of transition. Law firms have had to quickly transition to a work from home digital environment recently, while some firms had already transitioned to a more digital environment prior to moving remote. It is important that records policies maintain relevancy by addressing the current state of where client data is located. Some firms may not have a policy and procedure in place or may be working with an older policy that does not take into consideration all of the new places and repositories that client data might be stored. This podcast will provide guidance on ways to structure and maintain a modern records policy and procedure.”
