Lately I've been thinking about consumer focused medical devices. I am a Fitbit user and only ever access the information on my cell. I do not actively share my information in their communities but I assume that Fitbit uses my information, in aggregate, to make money. I'm fine with that as a consumer because the reality is that there is no HIPAA or PII associated with my Fitbit information. I get it, they are an for-profit company and I am receiving a ultra cheap service, Fitbit needs to make money on that service somehow.
“I try to act as if my mom were watching me.”
The words belong to Eli Romero of World Business Lenders LLC, who was quoted in a Bloomberg Business article about how companies are changing their approach to email in the wake of the Sony hack. But the advice is pertinent to anyone with information governance aspirations – including, perhaps, those who advised former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about her use of a private vs. government system.
InfoGovCon's Nick Inglis joins other industry experts, Tod Chernikoff, Mimi Dionne, Laura Livingston, & Jesse Wilkins on a session put together by CMSWire about the Clinton Email scandal. Watch the replay of the session below.

The Information Governance Initiative (IGI) and InfoGovCon are joining forces to drive the adoption of information governance. This strategic alliance, announced on February 19, 2015, will address the needs of the full range of IG stakeholders – from the practitioners in the trenches executing on IG to the executives making the decisions – by increasing IG literacy and promoting a common frame of reference.
The IGI is a cross-disciplinary think tank, community, and consortium focused on foundational IG research and executive education and collaboration. InfoGovCon produces an annual multiday IG conference that was created as a low-cost, peer-driven alternative for IG practitioners seeking education and networking. InfoGovCon also produces webinars and training, and provides a community where members contribute content, nominate and vote on awards, and discuss all things related to IG.
Executives of both the IGI and InfoGovCon believe that bringing the two organizations together will help IG to coalesce and mature as a profession, discipline, and market. The alliance will provide a multi-platform offering to IG practitioners that will deliver insight and tactics around the concept, market, and work of IG.
The IGI and InfoGovCon look forward to continuing to build and grow their IG activities with its valued partners including ARMA, AHIMA, The Innovation Enterprise, CDM Media, EDRM, ILTA, CFO Alliance, MER, and many others.
IGI and InfoGovCon hosted a live announcement of the alliance on Global Information Governance Day (Thursday, February 19th). You can view the recording below for more information.
The organizations are working on IGI’s Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO) Summit to be held from May 20-21, 2015 in Chicago, IL. You can learn more about the event here. They are also working on The Information Governance Con that takes place from September 29-October 1, 2015. Details to be announced shortly.
While many of us are years away from retirement, most have had the experience of changing teams, changing roles, or changing companies -- and with it we have all witnessed one of the most flagrant gaps in our corporate knowledge management schemes: losing knowledge due to these changes.
Similarly, most of us remember that in years past, when you joined a team or started a new role, part of your employee on-boarding and training was to receive "The Binder: The Source of All Collective Knowledge and Business Process Wisdom."
