Barclay Blair of ViaLumina is one of the founding founders of the Information Governance Initiative. In this interview, filmed at the InnoXcell Legal Big Data Symposium 2014 in Hong Kong in March 2014, Barclay Blair talks about the role of the Information Governance Initiative in spreading understanding of the value of proper IG in managing data for eDiscovery and other purposes.
As he observes, the US is leads the world in the volume and the scale of its litigation, and a great deal of new and interesting technology has been developed to face that fire. Litigation and related eDiscovery purposes are not the only reason why companies need to control and understand their data.
What he has seen and heard in Hong Kong, Barclay Blair says, suggests that Hong Kong’s position as a global financial centre will encourage early take-up of the principles of information governance.
