A How-To Guide For Managing Discoverable Data
Your organization’s data has value, but — even with the low unit cost of storage — it’s too expensive to store all of it. Plus, keeping it around poses risks. On the other hand, you can’t delete all of it without running afoul of regulatory and litigation-based retention requirements.
Information governance is the key to reasonably inhabiting the middle ground between those two extremes. It’s a way to maximize your data’s value while minimizing the costs and risks of keeping it and to account for data throughout its entire lifecycle, from creation through use and storage to eventual deletion.
In this guide we'll cover critical ediscovery considerations in information governance planning including:
- Data Organization and Management
- Record Retention
- Defensible Deletion
- Data Access and Security
- Extraction and Use of Business Information
