January Meeting Annoucement - Blockchain

The initial hype around blockchain technology has evolved, as more enterprises explore ways to employ the technology to create more efficiency and eliminate the need for central administration. Blockchain technology, which provides immutable records of transactions stored in publicly accessible distributed ledgers, presents a significant change to the way records are created and managed.  Records Management and Information Governance Professionals attending this webinar will become familiar with the application of the technology in recordkeeping contexts within various industry settings and understand how implementation of this technology will impact their programs and practices.
