On April 16, 2013 I will co-present an introduction to records management as part of The Osgoode Certificate in E-Discovery, Records Management, Information Governance and Privacy, a new 5-day certificate program. Along with Susan Nickle of Wortzman Nickle Professional Corporation, I will give an overview of records management practice which includes:
- Why best eDiscovery practices start at records management
- The business case for sound records management
- How to go about setting up a records management policy
The certificate focuses on key areas in eDiscovery: records management and information governance; privilege, privacy and confidentiality concerns in the context of eDiscovery; preserving, identifying and collecting electronically stored information (ESI); and culling, analysing, processing and reviewing ESI. The program concludes with an analysis of forensic essentials.
Although designed for judges, lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel, and other legal professionals such as Litigation Support Specialists and Court Clerks, it may also be of interest to Records and IT System Specialists, Compliance and Risk Managers, and Information and Privacy Officers.
