Although you may not be able to attend in-person industry events this spring, you can still count on Jinfo for its wealth of resources and remote events to support your information licensing and risk assessment needs. Find out what's coming up in our latest newsletter.


Although it's never easy to manage risks, it's easier when you have control over most of the relevant variables.

When it comes to information licensing, we rarely have control of most - or even many - of the variables.

I'm looking forward to facilitating the discussion in July's Community session, Risk assessment for information licensing - more important than ever.

If you have a Jinfo Subscription, you are invited to register for the session, taking place on Tuesday, 7th July at 4pm, UK time.

You can best prepare for the session by working through the activity you'll find in our article, Risk assessment on information licensing - even if you don't have time to complete the included worksheet, reviewing the framework and questions in this activity will spark your thinking about how to organise your approach to upcoming renewals and budget planning.

Conference season... NOT

We're all missing some of our favourite in-person industry events this spring and we don't know when travel options will open up again.

In the meantime, count on Jinfo's years of experience with our remote events:

  • Community sessions facilitate peer group discussions, and you can review the deck-with-notes (anonymised) of past sessions as reports

  • Webinars provide practical guidance on how to make progress with thorny challenges like risk assessments, and recordings are available.

Regardless of what's happening in the business world, Jinfo has your back for practical, research-based resources to support information licensing and running your information service.

Your Jinfo Subscription? That's good risk management.
