Session Outline

When it comes to creating effective data governance policies, both proper regulatory guidance and a deep knowledge of data held within an organization are needed to create compliant policies for data retention and remediation. Data retention laws and their requirements differ across countries and jurisdictions, meaning that in some cases, the same exact records held in two different locations can be subject to different minimum and maximum storage periods. 

Key Takeaways

  • Understand your organization’s regulatory obligations in the context of global retention laws 
  • Compare requirements for record types across jurisdictions and strategize effective retention policies  
  • Operationalize your organization’s retention policies as part of your broader Data Governance program
