The primary purpose of the ACC Information Governance (IG) Network (the “Network”) is to provide in-house counsel with a forum for discussing, collaborating and addressing common IG challenges that impact most corporations and to:
- Educate in-house counsel about the changing nature of how information and data are used within an organization and identify the risks, cross-functional challenges, costs, legal responsibilities and opportunities this represents.
- Develop and communicate practice policies, procedures, and best practice approaches for in-house counsel to work collaboratively to ensure the proper and legal control of information; and
- Empower in-house counsel to provide relevant, helpful and up-to-date advice on a broad spectrum of IG challenges to ensure that corporate information is protected, managed and retrievable in accordance with legal and business requirements and meet business needs for streamlined access to information, data analytics and the requisite technology to meet these needs across the enterprise. Help in-house counsel to understand the benefits of looking at organizational information across the enterprise and reducing risk associated with siloed approaches.
