There are plenty of interesting sessions today.  Sessions in the main conference tracks include:

9:30am – 10:30am:

The Future Is Now: Managing Messaging Data

Organizations are now leveraging technology and processes to identify records as part of large projects and as part of “business as usual” processes. With the advent of technology platforms that allow for indexing of documents/data, including Microsoft O365, developing processes around the technology will be transformative for the management of information. Hear lessons learned and case studies on: (i) the record classification of 1.5 billion email messages for a healthcare company; and (ii) the defensible disposal of more than 10 billion email messages for a highly regulated financial institution.

Upon completing this session, you will be able to:

  • Highlight the need for a multi-disciplinary approach for transformative information governance projects
  • Focus on key risks and challenges of managing messaging data, particularly when disposing of billions of emails in highly regulated environment
  • Demonstrate how to leverage new technology to achieve the goal of only retaining messaging data based on legal, regulatory, and business needs
  • Develop a framework for continual “business as usual” disposal of messaging data

Speakers: Anthony Diana, Co-Head Global IP, Tech & Data Group, Reed Smith, Therese Craparo, Partner, Redd Smith.

2018 CA Consumer Privacy Act: The Big Tail Wagging the U.S.

The CCPA will essentially “wag the dog” and your organization will need to be ready in time. Taking effect on January 1, 2020, this critical new data privacy law will impact organizations far beyond California (now the world’s 5th largest economy). Having been called the U.S. version of the E.U.’s GDPR, organizations are still scrambling to understand what data and rights are covered, how this is different than GDPR’s requirements, and how the CCPA impacts Privacy, IG, RIM, and Security across virtually all organizations who collect, sell, and/or retain personal information. In this session, two leading information governance attorneys will share why you need to and how you can be ready.

Join us for these key discussions and take-aways:

  • Identify the implications of the 2018 CA Privacy Law and related new legislation for your organization​
  • Define/refine strategies for compliance
  • Initiate changes to Privacy, IG, RIM and Information Security programs to ensure compliance with the law

Speakers: John Isaza, Partner, Rimon, P.C., Jeff Beard, Member, IAPP.

Unique Personal Privacy Issues after this Decade’s Supreme Court Mobile-Devices and Geolocation Privacy Rulings
