He often works to address complex information management issues, including the onboarding of new software and technologies and the privacy and security implications of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and sensors. He advises on information management practices and has helped draft and revise a variety of policies, including for Bring Your Own Device, Legal Hold, Records Retention, Social Media, and Mobile Device Governance.
