A Framework for Compliance - Effective Risk Mitigation and Information Management Webinar


Published on

Statutes, scandals, and litigation have elevated compliance and governance issues from what was traditionally considered a low priority to a corporate objective impacting diverse groups within an organization.

Enterprises struggle with managing content assets, stemming from end users’ inabilities to accurately and consistently tag content, and correctly identify and manage records.

In this webinar Collabware and Concept Searching will show how their combined solution enables governance and compliance processes to establish an information framework that ensures the availability, usability, integrity, and security of enterprises’ information.

What you will learn about during this session:
• Eliminating the error and cost burdens of end-user content tagging and the identification and management of records
• Responding more quickly to change and addressing new mandates
• Reducing unnecessary complexity and subsequent costs due to a lack of preparedness and user adoption
• Increasing the quality of information for decision making

  11. 11. Smart Content Framework™ for Information Governance “Information governance is the specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to encourage desirable behavior in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archival and deletion of information. It includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the effective, efficient use of information in enabling an organization to achieve its goals.” Gartner Information Governance
  12. 12. The Challenges • Less than 50% of content is correctly indexed, meta tagged or efficiently searchable (IDC) • Highly trained information specialists will agree on meta tags only 33%-50% of the time (C. Cleverdon) • Average cost of manually tagging one item runs from $4 - $7 per document and does not factor in the accuracy of the meta tags nor the repercussions from mis-tagged content (Hoovers) The Benefits • Early detection of non-compliance issues for remediation • Reduce costs associated with the inability to find information • Eliminate costs associated with tagging and mis-tagging Building Block #3: Governance
  13. 13. How do you enforce Policy? “It is simply not realistic to expect broad sets of employees to navigate extensive classification options while referring to a records schedule that may weigh in at more than 100 pages.” Forrester Research/ARMA International Survey Policy
  14. 14. The Challenges • 67% of data loss in records management is due to end user error (Prism International) • Large organizations lose a document every 12 seconds (Prism International) • It costs and organization $180 per document to recreate it when it is not tagged correctly and cannot be found (IDC) The Benefits • Reduce potential non-compliance issues and mitigate corporate risk • Reduce costs associated with litigation and eDiscovery • Eliminate costs associated with manual tagging Building Block #4: Policy
