Information Risk Management: Aligning Records, Privacy, Cyber & eDiscovery
Webcast replay available now Overview: Information is an organization’s most valuable asset. However, the more data an organization retains, the less its value as it becomes increasingly time-consuming to manage, more difficult to quickly access when necessary, and higher risk as a part of a growing corpus of discoverable data. Managing so much information can also take focus away from protecting the most important information assets.

Where is your data management initiative taking you?
Overview: In the world of technology, there is always a race to introduce the latest and greatest features, and the world of information governance is no exception. But, all of the features in the world can’t fix the problem if the foundation wasn’t optimal to begin with?

There’s good reason that “garbage in, garbage out” has long been a ubiquitous phrase in the interpretation of statistics: it doesn’t matter how nicely the results turn out if the measurements you started with are flawed. There isn’t a place where the phrase rings truer than in the worlds of information governance and eDiscovery.

What does Dodd-Frank Section 1502 mean for you? -- Webcast replay available now
Overview: This webcast is based on the SEC's final rule on conflict minerals, issued August 22, 2012, pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502. We will address the rule itself, how it will affect companies and how they should respond.

On August 22, the SEC issued a final rule on conflict minerals pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502. The rule describes the due diligence and reporting requirements for issuers whose products contain conflict minerals. These minerals – tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold – are used in a wide range of products across numerous industries, and some estimates suggest that at least half of all SEC issuers will be impacted by this rule. In addition, a large number of private companies within issuers' supply chains are likely to feel the pressures of reporting and due diligence as well. Significant reporting and operational changes may be required. On this webcast, panelists from PwC's Assurance and Consulting practices will lead a discussion addressing the rule, its impact, and what companies should be doing now.
