Iron Mountain® Advisory Services combine cutting-edge industry technologies with deep expertise and broad experience. Advisory Services are provided by a team of information governance (IG) professionals who have dedicated themselves to the intricacies of retention, privacy, compliance and risk management.
Advisory Services can work with you to review, improve or accelerate:
Advisory Services is one of the industry’s largest IG consultancies with over 20 years of experience providing holistic IG services to evolving enterprise organizations. From lawyers and legal researchers to records managers and library scientists, our IG professionals take the time to understand your specific needs and provide a detailed project plan with a timetable for deliverables.
Our Advisory Services team, with privacy specialists in areas such as data mapping, classification and retention, provides you with comprehensive support to mitigate risks associated with personal data and achieve privacy compliance. They will guide you through the process of assessing where you’re at, as well as the process of building a stronger privacy program customized to your organization. Through high-level and in-depth assessments, you’ll know where you benchmark against peers, and have documentation of your organization’s privacy compliance activities and risks to personal data. You’ll receive a strategic roadmap with practical guidance and support to build a program for identifying where sensitive personal data is located so you can either protect or delete it, managing subject rights requests, and augmenting your staff as needed.
Establishing a program benchmark is crucial to growing your program and provides the opportunity to display measureable improvements to your stakeholders. Our expert IG consultants will methodically evaluate your program, assessing everything from organizational design and policies to workflow processes and information inventory analysis.
IG program development is the next step in moving your IG program forward. Once you have a solid understanding of the current state of your IG program, our IG experts can help you create and implement a more robust IG vision.
IG experts will work with you to develop the two foundational aspects of your IG program: 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. You have to be aware of what information you have stored in what format across your organization to be able to properly and accurately map everything to a retention schedule.
Iron Mountain’s Content Classification service leverages our classification rules database and find your redundant, obsolete or trivial content (ROT) so that it can be destroyed.
You can have information governance experts placed in your organization to achieve specific RIM and/or IG goals. Our staffing services can meet the needs of both long-term projects and placement as well as consultative short-term projects.
Projects/staff placement include but are not limited to:
The GDPR has the power to change the way your business can collect, process, use and transfer personal data. Not only will you need to know and prove where your personal data is stored, you may also need to change the way you collect it.
