for the Public Services
1-day forum with 2 half-day post forum workshops
25-26 June 2012
Sebel Surry Hills, Sydney

Public service organisations across Australia create, amass, and retain an increasingly vast volume of information. To ensure that this information is accessible, usable and appropriately stored, an effective information management strategy is absolutely essential. Good information management practice is particularly vital within the public services, as organisations must comply with regulatory standards and allow for transparency and access to information for the public. In addition, good information management practice has the additional benefit of improving organisational decision-making when it is based on accurate and useful information.

Information management professionals in the public services face significant challenges in delivering effective information management services. They must navigate the myriad of regulations and legislation surrounding information management practice, ensuring their organisation is compliant across all levels. In addition, they face lack of understanding and support from their organisation, ever-changing priorities and technologies, and the difficulties of managing information security and access.

At this one-day forum, participants will hear case study presentations from public service professionals, giving you the practical skills and know-how to overcome these challenges and improve information management practice within your organisation. You will learn about:

* Complying with a myriad of legislative requirements and regulations
* Evaluating and learning from existing information management practices
* Engaging management and staff in the importance of information management
* Managing information governance, security, and access across your organisation
