Join us IN D.C. for Digital Government Institute's EDRM Conference AND EXPO March 22!

Later this month, records and information management professionals in the D.C. area will be gathering for the Digital Government Institute's 15th annual E-Discovery, Records & Information Management Conference & Expo. This event will focus on the best ways to securely store, access and manage important government records.


Federal Records Management is Evolving

Federal agencies are among the earliest adopters of cloud-based records management, for good reason. Privacy concerns continue to mount and the body of information government professionals must maintain grows alongside them. Associations like the Digital Government Institute keep records and content management professionals up-to-date on the latest best practices and aware of the shifting regulatory landscape.

As DGI states:

As the volume of digital information continues to grow, the scope of electronic records management has expanded exponentially and is an increasingly critical issue for government agencies, particularly as it relates to providing secure storage, access and retrieval of government records. The 2012 Managing Government Records Directive (M-12-18) outlining the goal of having all permanent government records stored electronically by 2019 continues to be top-of-mind within the E-Discovery and RM community. 

Come See Us in D.C.!

Gimmal is proud to be a silver sponsor for this important event. Key government and industry experts will gather at this event, which is FREE for government professionals, to explore technology solutions and requirements, policy updates, and review examples of successful electronic records and e-discovery programs. Keynote speakers include:

  • Laurence Brewer, Chief Records Officer, NARA
  • Gary M. Stern, General Counsel, NARA
  • Elizabeth D. Laporte, US Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of California

Intelligent Records Management Requires a New Way of Thinking

Technology is an enabler for sure. But without the right resources and direction, it can also be an inhibiter. Once an enterprise decides that all corporate information has the potential of being a corporate asset, the next step is to establish a continuous program to identify, improve, and protect this asset just like any other.
