Sustainable strategies for enhancing compliance, reducing risk and increasing operational effectiveness while lowering costs of information governance and management.

The explosive growth of information presents management challenges to every organization today. Unneeded information retained beyond its retention value increases the risk of privacy breaches and cyberattacks and is subject to e-Discovery. Evolving trends – including increased mobility, the inevitable move to the cloud, and “shadow IT” – are compounding the challenges.
With the risks, regulations and complexities of properly governing information increasing every day, many organizations are seeking guidance from experts to help reduce risk, enhance compliance, boost efficiencies, and drive down information management costs.
