Data Storage, Video Conferences & Security, Oh My.

In today’s climate, we all are relying on various communications software and data storage servers that allow us to connect, facilitate job tasks, and share sensitive information. Just how our conversations and data are facilitated or stored can be a bit of a mystery. What should we be looking for in security for our sensitive documents? The presentation will delve into security practices surrounding data storage and awareness of online communication tools.

Keynote Speaker

Jay Jenkins has worked in record retrieval for 20 years. At T-Scan Corporation, Jay developed all phases of the business:  from retrieval practices and processes and building the secure delivery of record systems, senior management and stewardship of client services, company expectations, and vision.

Currently, Jay is VP of Client Services and Partner at T-Scan with focus on client service, client experience, and process innovation. Over the last 20 years Jay has retrieved millions of protected documents from every state in the country.  On a daily basis, Jay and his team at T-Scan work through HIPAA, HITECH, and various regional, state and corporate rules governing protected information and create the most efficient, effective secure retrieval processes available in the industry.  Throughout the year, Jay presents many local, regional and national CLEs to various professional organizations across the country. Jay lives in Everett, WA with Denise, two college kids and a hyperactive Lab named Hope. We always have Hope.


We are grateful for the many years of support from our sponsors. Your generosity enables OPA to provide high quality educational and networking opportunities to our members. We understand that 2020 has brought us unique challenges. Out of understanding for everyone's budgets that are tighter than ever, OPA has made the decision to fund the annual convention without additional support from our generous sponsors. This year, sponsors, we invite you to attend as guests.
