Session 1: Intentional RIM- Gaining Buy-In for your Records Management Program

Deborah Robbins, CRM, CIP, Research Data Manager at Arizona State University

Deborah’s goal for this session is to have attendees better understand how to get stakeholders involved in their processes and tools; gain an actual step-by-step method for improved compliance; and learn skills to develop IIM heroes in their organization. This story focuses on identifying and overcoming barriers to buy-in. Emphasis in on people, rather than the process and the tools.

This presentation will include:

  • Understanding the importance of buy-in for a successful RIM program
  • The Three A’s of enhanced compliance
  • Developing an ongoing cadence with all aspects of Information Governance to insure sustainable compliance 

Session 2: Information Governance- A User’s Perspective

Christian Liipfert, Counsel at Scharf Banks Marmor LLC

How does one IG professional manage working remotely, taking account of Information Governance policies and procedures? Christian will look at IG from the user’s perspective, and suggest how the IG and Records and Information Management managers can help.

Session 3: Texas Cybersecurity Landscape – On Prem and Cloud Realms

Jeremy Wilson, Deputy CISO for Security Operations, State of Texas, Department of Information Resources (DIR)

Keeping up with cybersecurity threats can be overwhelming. How do you learn about the latest threats? How do you work with IT supporting best practices to protect your records and data? Jeremy will report on the latest DIR initiatives and how Records and IG Managers can speak the language and support your agency’s cybersecurity efforts.

Session 4: Go from Good to Great, from Great to Exceptional! It’s All About the Soft Skills

John Spencer, U.S. Records & Information Management Service Delivery Leader, Ernst & Young

The focus of this presentation is to create awareness and offer some practical and straightforward guidance that will help you enhance the soft skills needed to have positive and productive work relationships. Also, these skills are necessary to help you communicate your ideas, strategies, and results more effectively to customers, peers, and management.
