About the sessions:

8:30 AM- 9:45 AM
KEYNOTE: The End of Privacy

Presented by Michal Kosinski, PhD., Assistant Professor, Standford University

A growing proportion of human activities such as social interactions, entertainment, shopping, and gathering information are now mediated by digital devices and services. Such digitally mediated activities produce an unprecedented amount of digital footprints that can be used to reveal our intimate traits, emotions, and predict future behavior. Given the progress in Artificial Intelligence and computing, we should get ready for the future where privacy is a privilege reserved for the few. 

10:00 AM- 11:00 AM
PANEL DISCUSSION: Information Authenticity and the Role of Information Governance as an Arbiter of Truth

ARMA Chicago Chapter Spring Seminar Track 1: E-Discovery, Chicago Style

Presented by Kenneth Withers, Esq., Deputy Executive Director, The Sedona Conference 

Chicago is famous for its unique approach to traditional “tomato pie.” And the federal courts in Chicago have a unique approach to eDiscovery, thanks to a blanket court order affecting the management of almost all civil litigation in the Northern District of Illinois, balanced by useful guidance from the “Seventh Circuit Council on eDiscovery and Digital Information,” which has no equivalent in any other jurisdiction. In short, eDiscovery in Chicago is deeper and thicker, but cooks a lot faster (with the danger of burning down the kitchen). In this presentation, eDiscovery veteran Ken?Withers?of The Sedona Conference will select some recent eDiscovery cases from here in the Northern District to demonstrate the basic principles. He will then look at a few high-profile cases from around the country and discuss how they might be treated differently in Chicago courts, and the lessons for Information Governance professionals. 

ARMA Chicago Chapter Spring Seminar Track 2: Leveraging Information Value: From IG to Infonomics

Presented by Robert Smallwood, Managing Director, Institute for IG 

In this presentation, attendees will learn fundamental Information Governance (IG) concepts and principles, and how IG programs form the foundation for maximizing information value by applying principles of Infonomics, including several use cases. 

Attendees will: 

  • Learn fundamentals of IG and Infonomics, and the link between them 
  • Discover the characteristics of and uses for an Information Asset Register (IAR) 
  • Understand how IG programs form the foundation for harvesting information value 
  • Learn how Infonomics has been applied to monetize or leverage information assets 

 

4:00 PM- 5:00 PM
ARMA Chicago Chapter Spring Seminar Track 1: CIO Preservation Playbook in the Age of Digital Transformation

Presented by Janice Clatterbuck, Principal, JEClatterbuck, LLC and Lori Ashley, Preservica

She will describe approaches used to successfully engage board members, identify and validate stakeholder requirements, prioritize critical long-term institutional records for preservation, analyze the technical landscape and evaluate commercial solutions, and deliver a multi-tenant digital preservation solution on time and on budget.

ARMA Chicago Chapter Spring Seminar Track 2: Policy by the Slice: Applying Governance Rule Sets to Content

Presented by Jennifer Crawford, CRM, Director, Product Management, Iron Mountain

We all likely have a retention schedule. We also have privacy obligations, and administrative requirements related to cross border data transfer, storage, and format. But how do we take those requirements and automatically apply them to our content where it resides? And how do we keep those governance rules evergreen?  

What are governance rule sets? - Challenges of applying retention rules/governance rules to individual record types across content in disparate repositories - Systems available on the market that play in a similar space (classification, federation, etc.) and how they differ from this idea  

  • New thinking about delivering the “rules” of Information Governance beyond retention requirements by expanding into privacy and administrative governance rule sets, and then subscribing to only the rules you need.  
  • Case Study for delivering micro rule sets to content via individual governance rule subscription.

We must modernize our thinking around how we apply governance rules to our information, setting aside the tired conundrum of figuring out how to impose a standalone retention schedule or privacy policy onto our scattered content.
