[WEBINAR] The Future of Data Retention: Employee Validation
Hosted by MER In Partnership with Sherpa Software
August 4 | 1-2 PM ET
Rick Wilson, VP, Strategy & Solutions, Sherpa Software & Chris Bednar, Global Records Manager, Bain & Company
Traditional data retention approaches are typically dictated by organizations. You set a policy about how long data will be retained and/or what type of data can be kept due to its sensitivity. Because employees like to hoard data — and don’t often agree with these policies — you’re waging a constant battle to ensure policies are followed. Chances are this is your everyday reality.
This session describes a new approach to data retention that leverages automated presentation of data to be retained, archived or deleted, but enables the employee (data owner) to make an informed decision on its business importance for data retention policies. In this live discussion (slide free, we promise!), you’ll learn about the reasoning behind this updated data retention approach.
You'll also hear how Fortune 100 organization Bain & Company's long-standing vision for this has transformed its data minimization and risk profile, and how they’ve been engaging with employees in fun and unique ways to get their buy-in and involvement in the next generation of data retention.
