Strategy Retreat for Legal, Records and IT Executives Leading Change in Their Functions and Organizations

Featuring thought leaders from UBS, Novartis, BNY Mellon, Wells Fargo, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission,* Fidelity Investments and more

Information Governance is rapidly emerging as the convergence and coherence of disparate information and risk management practices, particularly eDiscovery, records management, and data governance. Legal, records, business and IT are joint information stakeholders, but often don’t operate as such or recognize their fundamental dependencies. When these stakeholders work in concert with a unified approach to information governance, companies can make step-change improvements in information economics by disposing of unnecessary data, curbing storage growth and reducing the information volume-related costs of litigation — often saving $50 million or more.

Legal, IT and records silos often lead to excess data, which compounds as volume grows every year.

Information Lifecycle Governance enables defensible disposition of unnecessary data by ensuring duties and value are tightly coupled with information assets.

Leading in Lean Times

New information governance program leaders and those seeking to lead programs in their organization recognize the tremendous economic potential information governance has but need governance models, business drivers, organization frameworks and peer experience to leverage, learn, and lead more effectively in their enterprise. This year’s CGOC Summit is designed specifically for new and emerging leaders in information governance.

This leaders' program will help Information Governance, legal, records and IT leaders to:

  • Assess the economic impact of fractured governance across legal, records and IT
  • Lead step- change improvement in information economics with an effective information governance program
  • Coalesce information governance stakeholders, and charter and initiate an effective program
  • Identify the essential processes and establish responsibilities and accountability
  • Drive process and practice improvement in legal, records and IT to achieve sustainable governance

The program includes a combination of presentations by information governance leaders and working sessions on cost analyses, program and organization models, practice benchmarks and leadership models. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from other leaders and work jointly with colleagues and peers on applying these tools and models in their own organization.
