On June 10, 2009, at 2 pm EDT, Barclay T. Blair was featured on an AIIM International webinar, entitled, Stay out of Trouble – Email and E-discovery. (A recording of this event is now available on AIIM’s website.)
Synopsis. By now you know that unmanaged emails can be used against you in a court of law. What you need to know is HOW to gather emails together under a centralized management umbrella so that those emails that need to be retained are kept and those deemed unnecessary are disposed of properly. Note the term “centralized management.” Emails, like other content types, will be spread throughout the organization on desktops, laptops and file servers in the email system or PST and NSF files. Proceeding from the idea that you must have a good policy in place — and that solid records management principles are the foundation for addressing your company’s email concerns — this hour will provide you with specific direction for taking care of your email challenges for ediscovery. So the next time opposing counsel goes fishing; you won’t get caught.
