Information governance

Your business has too much data. 

That is a surprising –even controversial – statement in the era of “big data” and the Internet of Things (IoT). Most people assume that companies are collecting massive amounts of data (generally true) and effectively and efficiently using that data to generate enterprise value (generally not true). Terms like ROT (redundant, outdated, trivial) and dark data (large volumes of data that are not proactively managed or effectively mined) more accurately describe the state of many corporations' data lakes.
  • The business value of data tends to degrade over time. In some situations, it can even become a liability.
    Aging data contributes to: 
    • Rising data storage costs 
    • High downstream discovery costs during litigation or a regulatory investigation 
    • Increased “backdoors” through which bad actors can enter your network (e.g. through a phishing attack or ransomware) 
  • Our Information Governance engagements take a holistic approach in balancing priorities. We interface with key leaders to ensure corporate objectives are being met: 
    • Business: ensure resources are available to maximize
      revenue opportunities  
    • Legal: defend the entity from potential liability while balancing business objectives 
    • IT: architect and enforce protection mechanisms via appropriate hardware and software 
  • Our policies aim to ensure corporations are complying with all state and federal regulations and industry-specific best practices. 
    We assist organizations with: 
    • Data mapping
    • BYOD (bring your own device) policies 
    • Email retention schedules
    • Defensible document destruction policies
