I recently completed a webinar about defensible deletion with Anthony Diana of Mayer Brown, Katey Wood of Enterprise Strategy Group, and Stephen Stewart of Nuix. We had a good discussion focused on the role of inside council in supporting and driving efforts to get rid of unnecessary data. You can check out the recording here.
The blurb for the webinar is below:
For many years, organizations have kept all their data, often beyond the mandated retention period. But with data volumes growing to hundreds of terabytes – or even petabytes – this is no longer an option. The financial and time costs of maintaining storage systems for so much data are prohibitive. In addition, much of this data is unknown, posing significant business risks and adding to the time and expense of discovery or investigation exercises. Defensible deletion allows organizations to identify, categorize and manage all their data across multiple geographical locations, applications and storage and archive systems. With this knowledge, an organization can delete any data that has no business value or legal hold requirements. Deleting unneeded data allows organizations to reduce storage management costs, speed up discovery and investigations, switch off obsolete storage systems and tame the Big Data beast.
Join information governance thought leaders for a step-by-step guide to developing and implementing a defensible deletion program for your organization.
This session will discuss how you can:
- Make content-driven decisions to identify which data you can delete and which you must retain
- Create sound document retention, deletion and archiving policies
- Select a knowledgeable external counsel who can work with you to create and implement a defensible deletion process
