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. 

IG Assessment Service

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 Service

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 Service

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.

Electronic Content Classification Service

At Iron Mountain, our Electronic Content Classification and Data Remediation service leverages a range of platforms for classifying and remediating both structured and unstructured data stored on-premise, in the cloud or in hybrid environments.
