Speaking at COSPUG Show-N-Tell

Posted by Steve Pietrek on May 18, 2009

I’ll be speaking at the COSPUG Show & Tell event on May 22nd. My topic is as follows:

Business Track: Legal & Regulatory Compliance through Advanced Document Management

SharePoint is a great tool for sharing, securing, and centralizing the management of documents and content. Managing these assets through SharePoint provides administrators with a number of capabilities to help satisfy legal and regulatory compliance initiatives (basic auditing, versioning, reporting and document policies). In this session we will examine how organizations can extend SharePoint functionality to automate document disposition and retention and provide legal holds throughout their SharePoint environment and in accordance with their regulatory needs and processes.

The COSPUG SharePoint Show & Tell is an educational, informative & lively day filled with sessions from users within the SharePoint community. During each session, presenters will show real life examples of the different uses of SharePoint within their organization.
