Data Preservation Strategy: What IT Needs to Know about Records Management, eDiscovery, and Compliance

"This seminar gave me whole new perspective on why we save data and what is actually required for saving data” IT Manager, Major Financial Institution, Weehawken, NJ, March 25, 2008

If you’re an IT pro responsible for data management and/or storage, there are certain key trends that you need to be aware of right now. These factors are altering the way you need to manage not just structured data – but also rapidly growing (and traditionally ignored!) unstructured data.

On October 8 in San Antonio, you’re invited to a FREE half-day seminar where you’ll discover – from two of the top experts on storage technology and practice and legal compliance and eDiscovery – how changes in data usage patterns and regulatory requirements are affecting the way you should be managing data. 

This FREE breakfast seminar is an invaluable opportunity for you to get out of the office and proactively address issues that you need to be aware of, but cannot be expected to research on your own.

For a seat at this exclusive seminar, apply online today or call Delegate Services Manager Amanda Lamb at (508) 621-5574.

About this Seminar

Join independent storage technology expert Greg Schulz, Founder and Senior Analyst at StorageIO, legal and eDiscovery expert Daniel Garrie, Principal, CRA International, and seminar sponsors Incentra and HP for ‘Data Preservation Strategy: What IT Needs to Know about Records Management, eDiscovery, and Compliance' coming to San Antonio on Wednesday, October 8.

If you are spending there time managing data and systems, you rarely get the chance to take a step back and hear about specific trends in data lifecycle/usage and legal drivers. This seminar is a chance to find out about specific factors that *will* affect the way you do your job – this is information that you can only get at this special seminar.

What Specifically Will You Learn?

  • How to address growing amounts of unstructured data
  • Insight into “new” data usage patterns that IT infrastructures are not presently prepared to handle
  • Tips on managing both real and virtual data centers
  • The concept of Data Preservation – why compliance is not the only challenge and archiving is not the only solution. What you need to know
  • How to reduce your data footprint without leaving you exposed (by deleting data you might later need)
  • Reviews of several common Data Preservation approaches: tiered storage, archiving, people/process/hardware/software
  • 10 Key Statutes/Regulations that you need to stay current on – regardless of your industry or organization size/status (public/private)
  • What data you need to preserve and the cost of getting it wrong (i.e. the risks in keeping data you could have deleted!)
  • Advice on an eDiscovery model that empowers IT/HR/Legal to work together, understand roles and set and enforce policy

Again, space is limited and we will stop accepting applications once the seminar registration is full. To claim your seat, apply online today or call Delegate Relations Representative Amanda Lamb at (781) 657- 1792.
