Kahn Releases Second Edition of "Information Nation": The Industry Bible to Information Management Compliance

With the current economic downturn, most organizations are trying to cut back. However in a world fueled by information, to ensure you remain “faster, better, cheaper and legally compliant,” it is more important than ever to have a comprehensive plan for information management compliance.

Internationally acclaimed author, industry expert and two-time Britt Literary Award winner Randolph Kahn has released the updated second edition of "Information Nation: Seven Keys to Information Management Compliance."

Published by John W. Wiley and Sons, the book explains why this is not the time to minimize costs in information management programs. It demonstrates how to succeed in this new environment by incorporating an information management compliance philosophy into the business processes and corporate governance structure.

The book is already receiving positive reviews from other industry experts.

“Who would have thought that Information Nation – the information management compliance ‘bible’ – could be improved?” said Jay Cohen, chief compliance officer at Assurant. “The second edition of this book is a must read for any person who cares about information management or litigation readiness.”

Kahn, founder of Kahn Consulting, Inc., shares this proven methodology that adopts the principles, controls and discipline necessary to build a solid corporate compliance program.
