The Challenge of E-Discovery: How Can Government Proactively Prepare to Respond?

April 8
Duration: 1 hour

Event Description

Among the critical responsibilities of government is the duty to make information available to the public.  Responding quickly to e-discovery, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and internal investigations is critical to government transparency objectives, but the time and resources required to support these activities can result in significant resource challenges.

Can you identify and produce at a moment's notice the vital data and electronic records your organization relies upon to function and those that transparency laws and policies, including the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, may require you to produce?

Don’t Be Left Saying “I Know It’s Here Somewhere”

Join Governing and Symantec as we explore and highlight the challenges arising from the ever-changing environment of enterprise records, message and data management.

At this event you will learn:
