Benefits of Governance and Compliance
- Bring regulatory risk under control
- Automatically classify data against your Information Governance strategy
- Centrally-managed retention and disposition policies, automatically
- Evidence compliance with a comprehensive audit trail
- Ensure no data is deleted without appropriate authority through workflow
Many organisations struggle to quantify the extent and nature of the data they store.
This is usually because there are so many “dark data” silos caused by employees which are not known to IT, Legal and Compliance teams.
An organisation’s entire data estate may span thousands of data siloes across hundreds of NAS drives and dozens of data centres and countries.
Other sources of ‘unknown’ dark data includes information that has been received as part of historic Merger and Acquisition activities, but was never fully analysed, indexed or classified to understand its content and the risk it poses.
What are the risks of non-compliance?
With effective governance policies in place, and regulatory risk under control, organisations’ resources are no longer wasted on costly and reactionary fire-fighting and can be redeployed to more strategic issues.
There is peace of mind knowing that centrally-managed retention and disposition policies run automatically across the entire data estate to ensure compliance, evidenced by a comprehensive audit trail.
Workflow capability ensures that manual control can be inserted into any automated deletion process, so that no data is deleted without the appropriate level of scrutiny and authority.
