Many companies and law firms have a records retention policy in place but never actually destroy any records or do not have confidence that the process is comprhensive and defensible. With the ever increasing volume of information received and created, coupled with mounting regulatory requirements, client imposed requirements and security threats, it is more important than ever to start truly managing records for their entire lifecycle and defensibly disposing of eligible records.
Now enterprises can easily and safely execute a complete retention and disposition workflow. Our solution provides the critical component to centrally manage disposition of collections of records residing on multiple systems and media formats. Automate the notification, approval, and dispositon process.
By their very nature, electronic records have a number of operational challenges. The distributed systems architectures present significant control issues. The ease of duplication and dissemination, lack of systematic indexing, and ease and speed of changes and edits create a complex management task.
Legislation, litigation and media coverage have all shown the problems that can befall an enterprise that does not have an adequate Information Governance Program.
Our holistic approach to Information Governance allows organizations to quickly develop the IG framework and then focus on effective implementation and user adoption.
Law Firms and Organizations often struggle with development of a strategy and approach to effectively implement an Information Governance policy. This includes everything from defining the overall policy objectives for IG, training and change management on policy components, and a roadmap to fully implement the policy and supporting processes.
These initiatives are often multi-year plans requiring coordination across the organization. We can work with your organization to define and execute a successful policy implementation.
There are a number of potential solutions that can assist law firms and organizations with IG program management and compliance requirements. These solutions include add-on tools for the document management system, email management tools, retention management solutions, workflow tools, records management systems, and legal hold management solutions.
Technology decisions require careful consideration and planning, and need to be evaluated in the context of other technology initiatives and the overall IG strategy. We assist law firms and organizations with the assessment, identification, and implementation of solutions that will best serve and support the IG program.
