Studies indicate that 87% of the organizations questioned feel that formal data retention policies are valuable, but only 46% actually have them in place. Combined with rapidly changing technology landscapes and burgeoning volumes of data, a lack of effective data retention policies can make Electronic Discovery (eDiscovery) a time-consuming, burdensome, and costly undertaking for organizations.
Despite prominent headlines, established and emerging case law, heightened data privacy issues, and growing regulatory risks, the “disconnects” between in-house IT and legal departments are growing more pronounced every year.
This session A) addresses an important case law update, B) provides a robust discussion of enabling technologies, and C) identifies leading practices that are helping companies.
Specifically, attendees will learn how to
- Create and sustain unimpeachable data retention programs;
- Manage data more effectively and defensibly; and
- Leverage existing organizational efforts related to compliance, data privacy, and information security.
This session will address how to:
- Identify major areas of legal and regulatory risk, especially risks related to poorly controlled data governance programs;
- Better understand how data is identified, collected, and used during litigation, investigations, and regulatory inquiries;
- Contribute to risk management discussions about managing data more effectively and defensibly; and
- Articulate ways to improve data governance by leveraging existing organizational efforts related to compliance, data privacy, and information security.
