NEW YORK CITY – June 9, 2015 – Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), a leader in eDiscovery software and services, announced today that Robin Thompson, who manages BIA’s educational programs, has earned ARMA International’s Information Governance Professional (IGP) Certification. Last year, Robin earned her CEDS certification from the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists.
This certification, awarded by ARMA International, was developed as a way for individuals to confirm their competence in the processes, methodologies, and strategies necessary to help executives responsible for an organization’s legal/compliance/information technology, and lines of business activities, to implementing effective information governance programs.
“Most of the organizations that we talk with today who are looking for help with their processes and workflows surrounding preservation and hold, are seeking to have these processes integrate into their organizational governance programs. I felt it was important to demonstrate to the organizations we talk with daily that not only do we have validated competence in eDiscovery, but also that same level of expertise of the broader discipline of governance,” said Robin Thompson. “BIA is committed to service excellence, and in providing the best, most effective solutions to our clients. Providing education, and staying educated ourselves, is one of the ways that we do so,” added Thompson.
“Organizations today are seeking out proven discovery and information governance professionals who can lead them through mass quantities of data in preparation for, or during litigation, electronic discovery, document review, and proactive information governance projects,” said Brian Schrader, President of BIA. “We encourage and support our team to seek out these industry certifications as part of our initiative to provide the highest level of service to our clients. Our BIA team collectively has eight Certified eDiscovery Specialists in our professional services and sales teams, in addition to several who hold security and forensics certifications,” added Schrader.
