Global Research Service & Policy Center Solution Highlights


As a leader of your organization’s global information governance program, you know that your retention schedule is not a once-and-done document because regulations and laws are constantly changing.

So why should business leaders care about having an up to date retention schedule?

The answer is, it empowers your organization to make decisions about what information you need to keep and for how long. If the research supporting your recordkeeping requirements is obsolete, then destroying information can be risky.

And too often organizations waste money by storing information they’re no longer obligated to keep because they aren’t 100% confident their retention schedule is up to date. And so, many organizations default to the most costly and risky retention policy out there, “Keep Everything. Forever.”

Today, there’s a new and innovative way to keep your retention schedule up to date with the Iron Mountain Global Research service and Policy Center solution.

To help you keep your recordkeeping requirements compliant, Iron Mountain delivers high quality legal research through its Global Research service, the industry’s first international records retention and legal research offering in the cloud. What makes this subscription-based service so unique is the research you receive continually updates as laws and regulations change, giving you a perpetually current base of legal research from which to build and maintain your retention schedule.

With your subscription you gain access to a comprehensive body of legal research compiled by a network of international law firms, and your Global Research coverage is delivered to you as a centrally curated service, giving you the option to flexibly subscribe only to the specific areas of law within the individual countries or provinces where your organization operates.

Your research can be delivered to you digitally through the Iron Mountain Policy Center solution, a secure cloud-based research authoring and distribution platform that is tightly integrated with our Global Research service, providing you with a new, interactive way to:

  • Access and manage your retention schedule.
  • Map your organization’s structure and data locations.
  • Meet defensibility requirements with a full audit trail.
  • And uniformly apply your retention schedule to your records management enabled systems.

You can also stay connected to Iron Mountain through our coordinated Support Desk, where you can receive personalized responses from local legal counsel. Have questions about something specific in your retention schedule? Not sure about a new change to a local law? Reach out and your questions will be answered with a managed care process.
