E-Discovery, Records & Information Management Conference & Expo
MARCH 22, 2018
As the volume of digital information continues to grow, the scope of electronic records management has expanded exponentially and is an increasingly critical issue for government agencies, particularly as it relates to providing secure storage, access and retrieval of government records. The 2012 Managing Government Records Directive (M-12-18) outlining the goal of having all permanent government records stored electronically by 2019 continues to be top-of-mind within the E-Discovery and RM community.
Key government and industry experts will gather at the 15th annual event – which is FREE for government professionals – to discuss current technology solutions/requirements, policy updates/changes and review examples of successful electronic records and e-discovery programs.
