TWIN CITIES ARMA E-MEETING  – Protecting Your Information with Microsoft Unified Labeling, Regardless of Where it Lives

June 8, 2021 – 1 P.M. – 2 P.M. EST – Cost: Free

​Be prepared as Microsoft transitions to unified labeling. Unified labeling keeps important documents and emails safe from people you shouldn’t see them, regardless of location. Unified labels not only help you protect company confidential information, but also plays an important role in addressing compliance obligations, such as GDPR, through a consistent approach to discovering, classifying labeling, and protecting sensitive data.

It can be difficult to keep up with the rapidly evolving suite of features and capabilities of unified labeling, so this session will provide the audience a broad understanding of the capabilities and how they can use them in their daily operation.

“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life” …. Marc Anthony
Ray’s Response ….. “While I’m not sure I think that Marc Anthony’s quote is 100% accurate, I will say that if you have a career versus a job, you will have the enthusiasm and passion to work hard in developing your career, to be the best you can be.   That enthusiasm and passion will make getting through those tough days a little easier.”
In this presentation, Ray will define:

  • Having a job versus having a career.
  • Recognizing a career opportunity at its early stages and making the decision to hop on board for the ride or keep looking.
  • Defining the components of a successful career.
  • Demonstrating how not a “what”, but a “who” will be an integral part of your career path.

Ray will use himself as an example of developing a career and seeing the signs of where he needed to be.  Surprisingly, RIM/IG wasn’t his first career choice but it became quite obvious that’s where he needed to be.  While 2020 threw him a curve ball he wasn’t expecting, he was able to make it to the other side successfully!

Ray has been in the RM/IG Profession for 30 years.
His introduction began with Commerce Bank, a financial services organization headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  He created their RIM/IG program, beginning as an in-house program servicing 28 locations in four states in 1991, to what became a fully outsourced program servicing 1,200 locations from Maine to Florida by the time he left in 2009.
Ray is the current Region Director for the ARMA Mid-Atlantic Region, Treasurer for the ARMA International Educational Foundation, and Treasurer for the Liberty Bell Chapter of ARMA.  He has continued his RIM/IG career with Feith Systems and Software located in Fort Washington, PA.
