May 14, 2021 | By Marissa Wharton

The FEDSpace Podcast 

The Show That Helps You Understand Federal Data Privacy and Governance

“The key thing for every agency to do is figure out who the champion of records management is. And that’s really an information governance issue – how do you bring together the C-suite with the person who is the go-to person to improve processes, initiatives, get technologies in place?”

This week on the FEDSpace Podcast, we’re joined by federal recordkeeping expert Jason R. Baron, Professor of the Practice in the University of Maryland’s College of Information Studies and former Director of Litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration.

With 33 years in public service under his belt, Jason shares his thoughts on how agencies can find success when working towards M-19-21 compliance, who should spearhead an agency’s records management initiatives, the benefits of collaboration between the legal and recordkeeping teams, and more.

The full episode is available above, as well as on Spotify and Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Subscribe to the show to never miss an episode!
