Information Management is at a tipping point. The tools and technologies we have developed have great potential but bring with them great risks. This is increasingly recognized by industry leaders, front-line workers, legislators, and regulators. In this session, you will get a whistle-stop tour through:

  • How we got here,
  • Why it matters,
  • What it means,
  • What we can do to ensure that how we manage and use information in the 21st century is trusted and trustworthy, and
  • What lessons we need to learn from the past.
