Ensure you’re complying with your industry regulations on data retention and format

Keeping your company’s data in a secure, current format is a time-consuming and strenuous task. In addition, a host of government regulations, such as SEC Rules 17a-3 and 17a-4, require the creation and storage of numerous types of records for set lengths of time in specific formats under strict security parameters.

Iron Mountain’s Media Migration Services migrate data into the appropriate format and encrypts it without interrupting your everyday data backup practice —without stretching your staff and budget.

Design an appropriate data protection and retention process to mitigate risk

By using Iron Mountain’s Media Migration Services, you can mitigate your risk of failing to comply or being unable to respond by migrating your data to the right formats for easy access. Our experts will help you understand specific regulations and design an optimal media migration and retention process so your data remains protected, but also accessible without disrupting your current backup processes and at a predictable cost.
