About the seminar
Companies are under increasing scrutiny from their Regulators who are making increasingly broader demands for larger amounts of information to be provided to them and in ever more aggressive timescales.
In our work in assisting companies to meet this challenge we hear a number of consistent questions, including:
- Who in our organisation owns/should own Information Governance, Legal/Disposal Hold/Release and e-Discovery?
- Who reports on each of the above, to who and how and how?
- How can we make better use of our in-house resources and technologies, or do we need to outsource?
- How can we make the legal review more cost effective?
- Is our organisation sufficiently resourced and organised to effectively respond to data requests?
