Austin/San Antonio ARMA Annual Seminar

Austin/San Antonio ARMA Annual Seminar
Friday, February 24, 2017, from 8:00-4:30pm
San Marcos Activity Center
501 E Hopkins
San Marcos, TX 78666

Back by popular demand, the ARMA Austin and San Antonio Annual Seminar in San Marcos, Texas!  The partnership between Austin and San Antonio has been working so well, we just have to keep it going, and it is our combined membership who benefits!  So, please join us for another full day of records and information management education and networking with your peers and vendor partners.

Seminar Program:

Registration and Breakfast: 8:30 – 9:00 am
Morning Sessions: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

RIM Program Assessment/Auditing: 9:15 – 10:30 am

Seize the Initiative to Make IG Happen

The degree to which organizations and industries embrace Information Governance (IG) varies widely – and no one size fits all.  In this session, case studies will highlight how RIM professionals recognized and seized opportunities to enlighten their organizations about the power of IG by innovative and practical actions to link IG to their organizations’ bottom line. Sometimes their “hook” was carefully planned while other times they seized on an unexpected and serendipitous occurrence. Three practices emerged from the case studies that RIM professionals can use as a guide to identify new opportunities to improve IG and to be able to support colleagues through disruptive times of change.

Speaker – Dr. Susan L. Cisco, CRM, FAI

Susan Cisco, has more than 30 years’ experience in the records and information management profession as a practitioner, educator, and consultant.  For five years, she was the Records Management Officer for the Oil and Gas Division at the Texas Railroad Commission, one of the most important energy-related regulatory bodies in the U.S.  Cisco’s seminal work in the application of Big Bucket theory to the classification and retention of records has led to the enhanced usability of ECM systems, simplified deployment strategies, and optimized user adoption for organizations around the world.  She holds a Master of Library Science degree and a Ph.D. in Library and Information Science from the University of Texas at Austin, is a CRM, and a Fellow of ARMA International.

Risk Assessment: 10:45 – 12:00 pm

How the Lowly and Boring Record Retention Schedule Can Have a Big Impact on Your Information Governance Program

For most creating or updating a record retention schedule is a boring, “check the box” task.  Few realize, however, that the design and development of your schedule can have a tremendous impact on downstream efforts to effectively manage electronic information for compliance, intellectual property, privacy and employee productivity.  Old-fashioned, super-detailed, paper-record-borne schedules that are poorly designed and difficult to use can hobble efforts to manage electronic information.  Newer, smarter approaches to records retention schedule development not only drive compliance, but also enable other parts of an Information Governance program and build consensus on what to retain.  Get it right and a schedule can be a boon for a larger Information Governance strategy.   Get it wrong and the lowly schedule can bring a program to a halt. Join us for a lively discussion on this deceptively boring topic.

Speaker – Tom Mighell, Esq., Contoural

Tom is Vice President of Delivery Services at Contoural. With 18 years of experience in compliance, litigation, privacy and Information Governance, Tom regularly works with corporations to develop Information Governance programs, including the creation and validation of records retention schedules. Tom served as Chair of ABA Tech Show 2008 and as 2011-2012 Chair of the ABA’s Law Practice Division.

Lunch and Networking: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Afternoon Sessions: 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Taxonomy: 1:15 – 2:30 pm

Amassing a Practical Enterprise Taxonomy:
The Foundation for Effective Content Alignment

ERCOT manages the flow of power to 24 million customers – about 90% of the Texas electrical load.  Critical to their business is the ability to provide clear communications and reliable data to their constituents; consumers, cooperatives, power generators, and more.  They need to be able to do this in a rapidly changing, data driven environment.  TO help do this we developed a controlled vocabulary – a common language to help organize content and clarify communications.  We’ll show how we built support for the new vocabulary, educated users, and designed governance that allows for feedback and continuous improvement.

Social Media: 1:15 – 2:30pm
Managing Social Media: eDiscovery Implications

For today’s companies, managing social medial and their web premise is a constant struggle to control the message, and remain relevant in an evolving communication and networking landscape.  Now, this new frontier of communication is increasingly becoming the target of eDiscovery investigations.  In this session learn the implications associated with social media when it comes to legal actions and investigations.

Privacy and Security: 3:00 – 4:15 pm
Protecting Privacy Through Improved Information Governance

With the expansion of laws protecting private information, many professionals in technology, law, records management, security and privacy management are required to ensure customer and employee information is properly managed. Simultaneously, with the increasing sophistication of hacking, organizations housing personal information are being tasked with ensuring they meet compliance requirements based on industry, jurisdiction and types of information captured and maintained. It’s a big job, but with sound strategic planning and implementation, one that can be as rewarding as it is challenging. 

Presented by Steven Williams, a Program Manager and Electronic Records and Information Governance expert for Iron Mountain Incorporated, this webinar will address laws applicable to protecting private information in United States and introduce a strategy that utilizes an Information Governance plan to achieve a level of privacy protection that meets current standards.
