You already know that your business is legally required to retain certain types of physical and digital information for some period of time. But without a clear understanding of exactly what needs to be saved and for how long, many businesses’ compliance “policies” are to:

  • Save everything forever
  • Retain information based on schedules not meant for their business focus and/or locations
  • Destroy information after an indiscriminate period of time

Beyond wasting time and money, this unstructured approach increases the liability for noncompliance with data- security and customer-privacy requirements. Iron Mountain can help.
