Strategies for Information Governance: A Full-Day Conference in Nanaimo, BC

Please join us for a one-day Information Governance and Records Management conference.

Our sessions include three informative talks covering everything from how to set up a records management program, through to information and privacy and records management in Sharepoint 2010. And, as always, lots of time to network!

Note that this year’s Nanaimo event is approved by the Law Society of BC for the Continuing Professional Development program.

Session Descriptions:

Building a Records Management House: Using the metaphor of a house, Ken Oldenburger will walk us through the elements necessary to construct a records management program. Although this only allows a cursory examination of each element, the big picture of records management is something that records staff rarely consider. The intention is to see how each portion of a records management program supports the other portions; this will give records staff a new perspective on their role in the organization.

Information and Privacy: Justin Hodkinson, an investigator with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia, will cover a variety of hot topics. These topics may include: severing tips; how to handle requests from law enforcement agencies; how to respond to requests for personal information when handling a catastrophic emergency; how to handle a privacy breach; video surveillance; in-camera meetings; and requests for interior building plans. Check back here for further details as we determine the most popular focus to provide attendees.

Graham Sibley, founder and CEO of Collabware, will illustrate how Collabware CLM records management software for SharePoint can be used to quickly implement an advanced RM solution that will increase compliance, reduce legal and e-discovery costs, and optimize records management processes, while still providing a fantastic end-user experience. This session will focus on examples of successful implementations with customers in the government, utilities, mining and pharmaceutical industries, and will demonstrate the many capabilities of Collabware CLM that greatly expand SharePoint’s RM capacity.

Docuware is a state-of-the-art document management system software for professional Enterprise Content Management. By tapping into the valuable information contained in documents, precisely where and when you need it, you can streamline your business practices. Tim Stevens and Jon Weston will highlight Docuware’s records management features as well as enhanced workflow functionalities and document capture and access regardless of source.

Your Local, Local Government Pioneer for RM in SharePoint 2010: Stacie Barclay will take you through the implementation thus far of SharePoint 2010 at the City of Langford. She will explore the success and the struggles, along with some lessons learned along the way. You will laugh and cry right along with her and leave with some insight into the elements to consider during a SharePoint implementation in your environment.
