P3: The Project Privacy Podcast 

The Podcast That Helps You Understand The Evolving Data Privacy Landscape

“As technology continues to advance and data and information continue to be created in just a rapid, rapid velocity, I don’t think we have a choice to have IT and IM sit separately anymore. It’s really not an option.”

This week on P3, Jeff Ball, Director of Open Government and Data Governance at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), joins the show to talk about how information management (IM) and information technology (IT) can be integrated more closely.

Having worked in both functional areas over the course of his career, Jeff now uses his experience to help bridge the gap between the two areas which currently operate as silos in many organizations. Tune in to hear more about Jeff’s initiatives and success stories at the RCMP, plus his words of wisdom for facilitating conversations between information management and information technology counterparts.
