8:00am   Records Management Vanishing Act: How Ephemeral and Self-Destructing Messaging Apps are a Game Changer
Jason Baron Esq   Jason R. Baron, Drinker Biddle & Reath (former Director of Litigation, NARA)
    Session Synopsis: The government faces unique issues of accountability and transparency with respect to the duty to preserve adequate documentation of agency activities.  But what about the use of private commercial apps in the government workplace, including communications that are designed to self-destruct?  Under the Federal Records Act, “electronic messaging” involving government business (i.e., constituting a federal record sent via a commercial app), should be copied or forwarded to a .gov account.   How are agencies overseeing the use of such apps?   Is guidance available? And is there available technology that can help achieve greater compliance with existing recordkeeping laws? 
8:45am   The ABCs of AI
Sue Trombley, Iron Mountain   Sue Trombley,  Managing Director, Customer Engagement, Iron Mountain
    Session Synopsis: Machine learning and artificial intelligence are quickly becoming the new standard for business operations. Yet for all the benefits these intelligent solutions provide, questions remain regarding their impact on records and information management.  This session covers the mechanics of AI, use cases related to information access and why RIM pros need to be part of the digital transformation.

10:30am   Transitioning to Electronic Government – the NEW M-19-21
Laurence Brewer, NARA   Laurence Brewer, Chief Records Officer, U.S. Government
    Session Synopsis: The White House issued new policy pertaining to the next steps in an ongoing effort to modernize federal record keeping.  Under M-12-18, agencies were tasked, by the end of this calendar year, to have electronic records managed in electronic format. According to a recent announcement between OMB and NARA, a new policy is now in place tasking agencies to plan to close their own individual physical records centers by the end of 2022 and transfer any paper records to commercial storage facilities. By the end of 2022, NARA will no longer accept transfers of analog records — only electronic records with the appropriate metadata.
11:15am   CUI Easy Button: How to Use Automation to Comply with CUI
John Cofrancesco, Active Navigation   John Cofrancesco, VP of Business Development, Active Navigation
    Session Synopsis:Are you struggling with the increased burden of information? Complying with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) requirements means integrating existing systems, ensuring appropriate document handling, adopting secure sharing procedures and bearing the extra information load that falls under CUI’s purview. It’s enough to make anyone sweat!

However, by leveraging automation, the CUI framework can be used as an opportunity to promote transparency and share and protect sensitive government information. Learn how, by examining your existing IT infrastructure and seeking more cost-effective ways to shoulder CUI, automation can save your Agency time, money – and your sanity!
