A Sneak Peak at Our Agenda..

11:00am - 11:20am Keynote Session: Governance and Compliance in 2017: A Real World View
Speaker: Bob Larrivee

The number of large organizations citing risk as the largest driver for IM had risen sharply over the years. The increase in regulatory, legal, and industry operating requirements are causing businesses to expand their governance frameworks and increase the security and protection of corporate and customer information. Organizations in all industries are faced with increasing responsibility and accountability to ensure that their data assets are managed and shared in a sensible and secure manner.

This Keynote will explore how organizations are addressing their governance and compliance challenges by looking at:

  • The business case for a governance and compliance framework for security, privacy and protection
  • Automating governance and compliance components (Metadata, Security, etc.)
  • Identifying the locations of greatest risk for breaches -- internally and across the firewall
  • Collection, retention, management, and defensible destruction of information
  • A look ahead at the next 5 years to understand where businesses are focusing their efforts and funding
