It’s an InfoGov showdown! Panelists will debate the merits of taking a reactive approach (“we did the best we could give the situation”) versus applying a proactive model (“you could have been better prepared if you had done this”) in a global discovery matter.

This session will provide you with a playbook on how to implement a global Information Governance program, balancing against the practical constraints preventing organizations from making infogov a priority – from people that have lived through both reactive and proactive approaches to discovery.

This program was recorded on February 1st, 2017.
