Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 18, 2008
The Digital Business Law Group (DBLG) has moved to address the problem via a packaged data retention service that embodies both the legal and business requirements of data retention and eDiscovery within a technology framework that provides the "electronic teeth" required for enforcement.
Developing a data retention policy (DRP) is a necessity for all mid to large organizations in order to manage information assets in a manner suitable for meeting the operational business requirements of electronically stored information (ESI) and for meeting the challenges of complex litigation. This service provides a comprehensive review of existing organizational practices (the "as is" state) and then derives an electronically enabled policy that governs the "to be" state.
Carlos Leyva, Managing Shareholder of DBLG, says: "There was a clear marketplace need for a DRP to be embodied within a technical enforcement framework. Without such a framework it is unlikely that a DRP would meet the 'good faith' requirements inherent in the recent changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), let alone address the operational problem created by the explosive growth of ESI--one that includes litigation readiness, but extends far beyond it."
The explosive growth of ESI and the recent changes to the FRCP regarding electronic discovery have triggered increased awareness of the problem. Many proposed technology centric solutions target well defined pain points while ignoring important legal governance issues. Other solutions focus on policy and disregard the technical implications. This packaged service is premised on the assertion that the solution to this problem must be comprehensive and must address both governance and the technical framework required for enforcement.
