    John Montaña J.D., FAI

    Mr. Montaña has long been considered the go-to attorney on all domestic and global records and information management (RIM) issues. His reputation and standing within the RIM community is unsurpassed. He is a highly sought-after speaker and has spent many years on the lecture circuit as well as many hours producing books, articles, white papers and podcasts on a variety of important RIM topics. He was recently elected as a Company of Fellows ARMA International member, was a sitting panelist on the GARP (Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles) development committee and continues to be thoroughly involved in consulting projects with Montaña & Associates.

    GARP/Retention Schedules

    Often, the hardest part of any information governance initiative is identifying the current state of a RIM program’s maturity measured against the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles (GARP or The Principles) and determining an organization’s strengths and weaknesses. Some of the questions we look to answer during a Maturity Assessment are—Does an organization have the proper RIM personnel in place, supported by the proper chain of command/department? Are there coherent and best practices Records and Information Management policies and procedures available and implemented? Does an organization have a functioning and legally compliant Record Retention Schedule? Learn what it takes to create a comprehensive, state of the art schedule meeting all regulatory and operational requirements, as well as configurability within technological capabilities and limitations.

    Data Lakes/ Data Mining & IG

    Big Data offers big opportunities but also presents complex challenges. One of the more challenging is the Data Lake concept.  Data Lakes are all about extracting value from all that Big Data everyone seems to have around.  It’s a great concept with a lot of possibilities, but along with those possibilities are a host of technical and management challenges that must be considered and resolved to keep the Data Lake from becoming a Data Swamp.

    This session will look at the Data Lake concept, consider the promise and the issues, and address the approaches needed to ensure that a Data Lake remains a useful and valuable tool, not a gigantic share drive.

    RIM & ROI’s

    Budget dollars are becoming harder and harder to obtain for records management and information governance needs. Yet, data is growing exponentially, it lives everywhere and is swamping organizations. Hear a perspective of how to "sell" your information governance needs to management.  What does the "C" suite care and not care about? What is your information truly costing, fully loaded?  Learn "where" and "how" you can start to claw back savings and reduce risk? And how do I "sell" our plans to management.

    Data Privacy Meets a World of Risk

    Privacy and data localization compliance continues to be an ever-growing concern for organizations as they increasingly utilize technology in their business processes. Increased stringency of privacy laws (particularly in Europe and Asia) are creating new challenges in the global marketplace and the recent rollout of HIPAA requirements to non-healthcare business organizations in the United States have demanded vital attention be given to these privacy issues.

    Managing Presidential Records

    Have you ever wondered how difficult it would be to manage presidential records with all the information platforms we have today? This presentation will focus on the unique responsibility of managing presidential records: Obligations under the Presidential Records Act, technological challenges of both paper and electronic records, adapting records management practices to each new administration and dealing with the upheaval of a Presidential transition.
