Welcome to the January 2014 issue of EDRM Update!
\r\nIssue 5 – January 2014\r\n\r\n2014 is in full swing and the EDRM community is as busy as ever.\r\n\r\nAn updated Collections Standards was released this month, and we’ll soon be announcing an updated Privacy and Security Risk Reduction Model as well. Thank you to the working groups who contributed to the continued development of both these important resources.\r\n\r\nEDRM hosted two more webinars this month, both of which were well attended and continue to see viewership online. Thank you to our January webinar sponsors, Nuix and Access Data, for sharing their knowledge and insights. If your organization is looking for affordable, professionally-managed webinars that attract good attendance, look no further than EDRM.

January 2014 Highlights
\r\nThe EDRM Budget Calcuators, published in November 2013, have been popular – so far over 300 people have downloaded the calculators we have made available. Comments have been positive, such as, “…These cost calculators will help clients understand the “ballpark” costs before reaching out to service providers.”\r\n\r\nWe updated the EDRM Collections Standards on January 16 in response to feedback posted at EDRM.net.\r\n\r\nOn January 23, we hosted a webinar, “Evolving eDiscovery Workflows for the Future,” sponsored by Nuix.\r\n\r\nOn January 30, we hosted a webinar, “Tales from the Trenches: Blue Shield In-House Team,” sponsored by AccessData.\r\n\r\n

\r\nReed Irvin, Senior Vice President, Product Development, Viewpointe\r\n\r\nEDRM Member since 2007\r\n\r\nEDRM Projects & Committees: I started with the Evergreen project and was a founding co-chair of the IGRM in 2010. I currently co-chair the IGRM (Information Governance Reference Model).\r\n\r\nWhy I’m an EDRM member: EDRM membership offers an invaluable opportunity for collaboration among two typically separated groups – vendors and practitioners. The unique open forum allows for discussion of market trends and challenges while putting aside competitive and individual agendas in order to drive the industry forward. And the formation of the IGRM in 2010 is a perfect example of EDRM participants working together as thought leaders to respond to an essential industry evolution.\r\n\r\n
