Yes, Information Mismanagement for Your IG Program.  While the prevalence of information mismanagement should be appalling to information professionals, it paradoxically offers us a powerful tool for advancing our programs. Information is mismanaged due to accidents, poor corporate processes and system controls, negligence, and malicious and criminal intent.

This presentation will provide an analysis of information mismanagement in the aggregate. It will assess and categorize information mismanagement events as they relate to The Generaly Accepted Recordkeeping Principles and how this relationship provides a foundation for more aggressively promoting the ethical aspects of RIM and IG within your organization. It will cover applications of mismanagement cases to IG communications, tailoring the message for specific audiences. Such communication demonstrates to senior executives that devastating headlines are never far away and to corporate colleagues that information mismanagement is an epidemic with serious implications.
