Policy Center

You’ll be able to keep your records retention and data privacy policy management connected, current and compliant through the cloud-based Policy Center portal. As laws change, you can count on high quality research from our international network of law firms to know how changes impact your organization so you can update your policies accordingly. Available as a subscription service, you’ll receive a feed of fully cited and summarized legal citations with a simple explanation of the requirements to empower your decisions on retention rules and privacy obligations that make sense for your organization. With filters you can easily view which record classes and types in your retention schedule are affected by privacy law.

To show compliance, you’ll have tools to document critical information about your business processes that contain personal data, enabling compliance with the GDPR Article 30 requirements. You’ll be able to create visual maps to centrally see where personal data lives, who owns it, what process it’s a part of and what are your retention rules and privacy obligations for it. In your maps you can show the movement of personal data within and outside of your organization so you can quickly identify where personal information is located to help your company respond to time-sensitive issues, such as data breaches, subject access requests, data erasure requests, audits and litigation.

Employees in your organization can easily access the latest version of your retention schedule and privacy policies online, using custom views and advanced search to filter to only the retention rules and privacy obligations that apply to them. You also have the option to connect policy to your content infrastructure through an open application programming interface (API).
