CFO Strategy

  • Information Governance and the Cloud
    Information Governance and the Cloud Bill Tolson, Actiance & Jim Shook, Esq, EMC Corp. Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With the cloud computing promise of faster, better and cheaper, everyone needs a cloud strategy. But the strategy needs to be informed because legal and regulatory obligations, including eDiscovery, remain the company’s responsibility even when a third party cloud provider has the data. Public, private and hybrid clouds all have different characteristics that impact access to, control of and remedies for issues related to your organization’s data. Changing regulations on data privacy and security alter the risk profile for maintaining data in different types of clouds, and even the location of the cloud can be important.

    In this webcast we have discussed some of the important differences between cloud models and how organizations can develop a strategy that best meets their requirements. In this webcast, we’ll address the following questions:

    • What are the basic cloud deployment models?
    • What are the key compliance benefits and risks of public and private clouds for email?
    • How can my organization determine which types of data are the best fit for the different cloud models?
    • What are some of the current and up-and-coming trends that may impact some of my cloud decisions?
  • The Top 5 Myths of Archiving
    The Top 5 Myths of Archiving Bill Tolson, Archive 360 & Gopal Ramanujam, Actiance Aug 15 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Suffice it to say that traditional email archiving is a mature technology category. However, more firms are looking at archiving today for the first time as their ‘keep everything forever’ strategies have failed. Others are motivated by a move to Office365, while some are looking for new approaches to address the growing challenges of social media, instant messaging, and rich media communications channels that are growing organically inside their firms.

    Whatever the driver, archiving remains misunderstood by many – both within IT and across business units. Join us and our guest Bill Tolson from Archive360 as we explore and attempt to clarify the top 5 archiving myths:

    • Archiving is primarily for email storage;
    • Archiving is only necessary for regulated firms;
    • Archiving leads to the risk of over-preservation;
    • Cloud archiving is more expensive and less secure than traditional on-premises archiving;
    • End-users don’t benefit from Archiving

    We’ll wrap up with a brief overview of how Actiance and Archive360 are enabling organizations to address these myths and achieve their information governance objectives.
