Frictionless Information Governance with Microsoft 365

A session with the Information and Records Management Society (IRMS) and Welsh Government

Today, government agencies work in a more distributed environment. However, it is still necessary for complete and accurate information to be captured, given such agencies rely on this to better support, protect and serve the community.

Most have already adopted new technologies such as Microsoft 365, including collaboration tools like Teams or SharePoint. But, how can Records Managers leverage these new tools and systems for their benefit and efficiency in a remote-working world?

Hosted by IRMS North, the Objective team are joined by Welsh Government to address:

  • The new challenges that Records Managers face in the ‘modern workplace’;
  • How to provide sustainable governance with M365;
  • How to deliver a holistic approach for information assets, irrelevant of the system used to create or edit; and
  • Internal and external collaboration good practice in 2021.

Dr. Steven Marshall, Head of Social Research and Information Management at Welsh Government specifically highlights the information governance challenges faced during the pandemic, the lessons learned, and how these challenges are being addressed both now and in the future.
