Information governance in our digital era: join our event

In today’s digital era, the amount of structured and unstructured – email, social media feeds, digital video, audio, sensors – data is exploding. At the same time, regulations are very strict and cybercrime is booming.  That makes proper records management – over time and space – more complex and more crucial than ever
How do you ensure that you are managing the right type and amount of information in the right – and compliant – way?

An introduction to information governance standards

To show you how standards can help in this process, NBN joins forces with digital transformation leader Sopra Steria. During the info session ‘Information governance: managing records in today’s digital era’ on 11 October 2018 you’ll discover and discuss the added value of standardisation in information governance, through presentations and business case studies.

What’s in it for you?

As a participant, you will:
  • learn about the added value of standards for archives, records management and information governance professionals both in the private and in public sectors;
  • share best practices, ideas and experiences with experts and peers;
  • have the chance to join the NBN expert group on records management, thus giving your company a voice in the development of standards for your sector.
