Why Implement a Defensible Deletion Strategy -Information Governance Best Practices

A Methodology for Controlling Cost and Managing Risk

Simply stated, information is either an asset to an organization, or it is a liability.  This idea isn’t new.  Organizations have been practicing records and information management for years – assessing the value of corporate information against business, legal and regulatory needs and then making conscious retention and disposition decisions. 

While these disposition drivers remain paramount, in today’s information-based economy and technology-driven business environment, controlling cost and mitigating risk has become an increasingly complex, and often times daunting task. 

This white paper brought to you by Merrill Corporation and Index Engines will show how implementing a defensible deletion strategy not only mitigates long term risks and liabilities related to enterprise data assets, but also saves time and expense in supporting ongoing litigation and eDiscovery efforts.
