NAID CEO Bob Johnson has announced plans to be on the road promoting the association’s new Information Disposition textbook in 2018 in order to demonstrate its broader application.

“As the project evolved,” says Johnson, “we quickly realized the textbook had valued beyond the CSDS training and higher education. A significant portion of existing sales have come from information management and security professionals and risk managers looking to improve their vendor selection, RFPs and contracts language.”

Included among those to whom Johnson intends to carry the message are records managers, IT asset managers, and privacy, security and data compliance professionals.

According to NAID’s Director of Marketing and Communications Kelly Martinez, NAID members have an important role to play in the barnstorming initiative. “Many members have active relationships with professionals of this nature and therefore can help us find opportunities to present to them. We know these groups are always looking for speakers and educational content, and due to his involvement with NAID and as the author of the book, we expect Bob will be a welcomed speaker.” Martinez is quick to add that NAID will be reaching out to many such organizations both at the regional and national level.

NAID has already announced that Information Disposition will be integrated into a major university’s curriculum this fall, making it the first time the subject is addressed as a standalone security and compliance discipline.

Members with potential speaking opportunities should contact Kelly Martinez, as we are currently planning Johnson’s travel itinerary.
