ZyLAB webinar on 2 April – Bridging the gap between Legal and IT to increase efficiency and reduce risk

zylablogoZyLAB is sponsoring a webinar on 2 April with the title Bridging the gap between legal and IT to increase efficiency and reduce risk. I am one of the participants; the other is Mary Mack, Enterprise Technology Counsel at ZyLAB.

Legal and IT departments are not necessarily the only interest groups within an organisation who are affected by demands for documents and data – HR, privacy and compliance people and a range of other specialists may have to get involved when eDiscovery demands arise.

Legal and IT do not necessarily have parallel interests here – the job of IT is to enable the creation and safekeeping of data; Legal needs to be able to find the information they need, often quickly. That can be expensive; it also imposes stress on departments who are already busy with routine work.

Information governance is a wide topic with many facets. It includes, among other things, the processes and ground rules needed to classify information both by subject and by including, where possible, a flag to indicate that documents have no value and can be deleted. In this webinar, we will look at the risks and costs, and also at the value, which can be managed more efficiently by a programme of defensible information governance.

There is more information and access to a registration form here.
