Establishing an effective information governance program can be a complex undertaking. Organizations habitually over-retain information, especially unstructured electronic information, many relying on individual employees to decide what should be kept and for how long and what should be disposed of. On the opposite end of the spectrum, a minority of organizations have tried centralized enterprise content management systems and have found them to be difficult to use. The result is huge amounts of data end up on employee workstations, on removable media, in cloud accounts or on rogue SharePoint sites and are used as "data dumps"ť with or no records management or IT supervision. Join this webinar to discuss a better way to use and manage information and lower the cost of storage as well as decrease the risk associated with eDiscovery.




  • Identify how having a law firm information governance strategy is necessary to growing information management challenges within the legal industry
  • Examine how by understanding an organization's data lifecycle will improve information governance, regulatory compliance and eDiscovery response
  • Analyze how to manage the costs and risk associated with information governance
