In this webinar, our EDRM and CIGO-certified experts will discuss how Information Governance (InfoGov) is truly the critical and foundational first step to the EDRM.

12:30 – 1:30 p.m. ET
ARMA Metro NYC Presents:
How to Establish a Governance, Risk and Compliance Strategy for Microsoft 365 and Beyond
Speakers: John Mancini and Brian Tuemmler

How do you adopt a strategic mindset to governance, risk and compliance (GRC)? Organizations typically fall into one of two categories. They either pay high-level lip service to governance, with lofty intentions that never translate into action, or they become so mired in GRC details that they never translate GRC competency into tangible business value. In this session, John Mancini and Brian Tuemmler will create a strategic framework for M365 (but not limited to M365!) that is built upon four key questions:

  1. SCOPE – What “stuff” needs to be managed? From whom? Where?
  2. CONTEXT – What does the translation to the cloud mean, and what on earth is the difference between E3 and E5?
  3. MANDATE – Which functions are in scope?
  4. What do you need to know about the PLAYERS and ROLES in an effective GRC strategy?

    This is a free virtual event.

ARMA New Jersey Presents:
Varsity Victories: Managing College and University Records
Speakers: Stephen Dalina and Ann-Marie Phillips
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a records manager outside of a corporate or government setting, here’s your chance! Records management at colleges and universities can take many different forms, depending on the size of the institution, whether it is public or private, whether recordkeeping is centralized or decentralized, and what the level of executive buy-in and campus participation is. The speakers will discuss the evolution of their respective programs, both of which are relatively new, and share some of the trials and tribulations of managing records in a lower-regulation environment.

Please join us immediately after the session for an informal networking session to chat with the presenters and other attendees.

We will have discussions around topics such as “What permanent changes will be made now at your workplace due to the disruption caused by COVID?” and “What records projects are you working on?
