This is your chance to witness a live debate on the most pressing issues facing our field, moderated by a renowned figure in the IG world, Mike Salvarezza.

As Information Governance professionals, we are all aware of some of the contentious issues facing our field. And we know that there are often differing opinions on how to solve problems, implement solutions or create strategies for the future. The rapid rise of AI and other innovative technologies only helps to fuel this uncertainty. Some of us may even have different views on exactly what Information governance is and what it means to our organizations. In this Tuesday morning plenary session, we will invite Jason Stearns and Carol Stainbrook, two giants in the field of Information Governance and long-time participants at ARMA events worldwide, to debate these issues live on stage! Join us for what is certain to be a lively start to the day and an illuminating discussion of the issues we are all grappling with as we all seek to chart our own IG strategy for today and tomorrow.
