ARMA Saskatchewan Is Pleased To Announce IT 101 – 2017

ARMA Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the third session in this years ongoing program series that will highlight the need for corporate disciplines to work together in order to achieve Information Governance in their organizations.

The third presentation will be IT 101 which follows the Risk and Security 101’s. As a refresher, the first presentation on each discipline will be an awareness 101 session presented by Rick Stirling the President of Western Information Management while the second session on each discipline will be presented by an industry expert in the topic. All of these will be followed up by an information governance presentation and panel discussion with the experts at the completion of the series.

The ARMA Saskatchewan board is aware of the difficulty many of its members have in traveling to take in educational programming so in order to allow maximum attendance to this important series of presentations the board has licensed GoToWebinar. This will allow maximum online attendance without the need to travel. This medium of delivery will also allow our members to take in educational content with their colleagues in their own offices.

Since Information Governance is a senior management proposition this also allows our members to extend an invitation to their senior management as well on the hopes that these presentations open positive dialogue corporately about Information Governance.

Session 3 – IT 101, 11:00 AM October 19th     1Hour

This session will offer the attendees an introduction and awareness of the IT discipline as it is today and how it fits within the Information Governance framework.

For those that did not get an opportunity to hear the Risk Management and Security 101 sessios the recordings are located at http://ig.westernim.com/workshops  . The slide presentations and other resources are also available in the resource area of the WesternIM IG Community website at http://ig.westernim.com.

 

Please take this opportunity to invite your information governance partners in your organization to join you for the webinar or to register on their own.  Because all of the webinars are recorded, you might even consider hosting a lunch and learn in your workplace!
