“February’s webinar will feature industry expert, and nationally sought after lecturer and educator Jeffrey Ritter. Among his many accomplishments, Jeffrey is a lecturer at Georgetown and Oxford University, and is a prolific author including his most recent book Achieving Digital Trust: The New Rules for Business at the Speed of Light.
“It is no longer prophetic to say that the functions of responding to regulatory inquiry and litigation requests require multiple communities of practice inside the organization to work together in order to properly respond including those business functions of IT, risk, compliance, privacy, security, RIM, IG and legal. It’s important to have education discussing how we build ROI for these collaborative environments, said Robin Thompson, VP of Marketing and producer of BIA’s Knowledge Leadership Series webinars. “To that end, this month’s program is designed to do just that, with Jeffrey discussing how we can build ROI for information governance inside the corporation. Jeffrey will discuss how governance (RIM, eDiscovery, Security) achieves all-in wealth creation opportunities that corporations have not previously been able to count and incorporate into their proposed calculations of ROI, and how we can create the business case for governance,” added Thompson.

About Jeffrey Ritter: Jeffrey grew up in Columbus, Ohio and attended The Ohio State University, majoring in Communications. He was their first graduate awarded his B.A. and M.A. degrees concurrently while earning a perfect 4.0 grade point average. Jeffrey received his law degree from Duke University and began his legal career in 1979. Originally trained as a corporate and securities lawyer, his clients, notably Victoria’s Secret and The Limited, required someone to manage the legal aspects of acquiring computers and software. By the late 1980’s, Jeffrey was consistently pulled to the front edge of innovation in electronic commerce. As a lawyer and trusted advisor on technology implementation, Jeffrey worked with some of the most recognized corporations and institutions in the world— Chevron, The Limited, duPont, Wal-Mart, Disney Stores, Universal Postal Union, Deutsche Bank, Lord Abbett & Co., TD Ameritrade, PPG, Alcoa, Carnegie Mellon, MeadWestvaco and JP Morgan. In doing so, he has navigated—and often led from the front on—the migration toward digital global business across a full array of technologies and services—EDI, electronic commerce, encryption, Internet access, digital signatures, privacy, outsourcing, digital records storage, records and information management, and e-discovery.
