Description: Firms are just beginning to grasp the magnitude of having too much electronic information clogging the digital pipeline. Mercifully, the law is now trending toward easing this burden with the recent changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Our expert panelists will provide a cogent strategy to manage all forms of electronic documents according to a predetermined and well-thought-out records retention policy, and give you a framework for making defensible decisions to manage and dispose of records and information consistently and cohesively.
A teleforum on this topic was hosted by this panel of experts on March 2nd and was a huge hit. Many members were unable to attend and expressed interest in a follow up, so the speakers recorded this podcast to share the takeaways with all of us.
