IG programme development is the next step in moving your IG and data privacy compliance forward. Once you have a solid understanding of the current state of your IG programme, our IG experts can help you create and implement a more robust IG vision.

They will work with you to develop the two foundational aspects of your IG programme: a cross-functional IG structure, including a steering committee; and enterprise-wide IG policies.

Content classification is a vital aspect of managing the information lifecycle. In order to properly manage the disposition of your hardcopy records, they must be classified to your records retention schedule.

Iron Mountain’s comprehensive classification solutions utilise cost-efficient and data-driven processes to the furthest extent possible, and employ physical inspection for the remainder.

Retention Policy Management

The primary tool in digital and physical information lifecycle management is a records retention schedule. At the most fundamental level a retention schedule dictates how long to keep documents to achieve and maintain GDPR compliance and meet requirements of industry regulations that apply to your organisation.

While a functioning records retention policy is a crucial information governance principle, it also enables your organisation to manage the complete information lifecycle efficiently. Iron Mountain® Policy Centre is a user-friendly, online platform to help you keep your retention schedule up to date.

 

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Are You Compliant?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has left many organisations scrambling to overhaul how they collect, store and manage data in order to ensure GDPR compliance. Adoption of new policies is vital in achieving information compliance under GDPR and demonstrating efforts made to meet the regulation to ICO (Information Commissioner's Office). Furthermore, under the accountability principle you must also review and, where necessary, update these policies.

So, what are your first steps? Our Information Governance Advisory service can help you get started. We will help you consider how your data is being processed, stored and eventually discarded, the most sensitive information in particular.
