Orlando, Jan. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Erin Gray, deputy general counsel of capital markets for CNL Financial Group, will speak at the Society for Corporate Governance Essentials Seminar being held Jan. 25–27 at Walt Disney World’s BoardWalk Inn.
Gray is a member of a panel that will discuss the significance of developing a company-wide record management and retention policy, including protecting personally identifiable information, mobile devices, electronic files and litigation holds. At CNL, Gray is responsible for overseeing the company’s wholesale broker-dealer regulatory team, providing legal and regulatory support, and overseeing the firm’s private placement investment opportunities. She has previously managed the corporate legal, litigation, contract negotiation and legal billing functions for CNL and its affiliates.
“As data breaches, both accidental and through hackers, become more commonplace, it becomes even more important that companies have policies and procedures in place to protect all of their devices and the information they contain,” Gray said. “I look forward to sharing with other industry professionals the necessity of establishing and implementing these policies, and hearing how other businesses are approaching this issue.”

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
