"The old mantra “better safe than sorry” inappropriately guides records management practices for many organizations. The more you have, the more you have to expose" -- Marty Provin, Executive Vice President at Jordan Lawrence
St. Louis, MO, October 5, 2016 (PRWEB) October 07, 2016
Jordan Lawrence, the leading provider of records management and information governance solutions and long-time Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Alliance Partner, will host an informative session discussing the concept of defensible deletion as an essential component of an effective records program at the ACC’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco on October 18th from 4:30-6:00pm.
“Approximately 90% of records reviewed during document discovery have no legitimate business or regulatory retention requirement. So why do companies have these records? The old mantra “better safe than sorry” inappropriately guides records management practices for many organizations. The more you have, the more you have to expose” – Marty Provin, Executive Vice President at Jordan Lawrence.
This session will discuss the principles of defensible deletion: know what records you have, where they reside, how long you should keep them and how to properly dispose of them. Eliminating obsolete records reduces costs and risks and makes the process of finding critical, relevant information easier. This session will equip in-house counsel to lead an initiative to reduce the amount of data maintained by their companies by 50% or more and better meet legal and regulatory obligations.
The presentation will feature Richard Gottuso, Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary at Hunter Douglas; Nora Kurzova, Chief Privacy Officer at Tyco; Marty Provin, Executive Vice President at Jordan Lawrence and Jeff Stites, Former CIO of Diamond Foods and President of Stites Consulting.
