EDRM and the Institute for Information Governance offer New Professional Education Series: eDiscovery Trends

As you know if you read this blog, EDRM is committed to education within the eDiscovery industry.  Now, a new partnership with the Institute for IG and IMERGE Consulting will provide education for those interested in learning more about information governance (IG) and electronic records management (ERM).

As EDRM announced yesterday, the purpose of the partnership is to offer education for e-discovery professionals who are seeking to build practical skills in IG and ERM. Participants will earn a certificate in Advanced IG or ERM. Live instructor-led sessions will be held March 22-24, 2016, at the University of San Diego, Kroc Center. Online sessions and on demand HD video content are also available. Course details and registration can be found on the EDRM website at http://www.edrm.net.

“EDRM introduced the Information Governance Reference Model (IGRM) to help promote collaboration among the various stakeholders – business users, IT departments and legal, risk and regulatory departments, all of whom have interests and obligations in effective information governance,” said George Socha, co-founder of EDRM. “As the industry continues to mature, professional education that integrates the principles of effective information governance with the legal and risk management interests in e-discovery and regulatory compliance is more important than ever. The courses offered by the Institute for IG provide EDRM members a valuable opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills in the areas of IG and ERM.”

Robert Smallwood, the world’s leading IG author, blogger and trainer, is the primary instructor for the IG classes. Charmaine Brooks, CRM, a renowned records management expert, is the primary instructor for the ERM classes. George Socha will serve as an advisor and guest instructor.
