Eight Considerations for Defensible Deletion, Part One: Information Governance Best Practices

As part of the Educational partnership between Ipro and eDiscovery Today that was announced recently, I’m excited to say that I will be writing a new weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog, to supplement the excellent educational content that Jim Gill and the Ipro team regularly provide!  Just like I do on eDiscovery Today, I will write educational posts about a variety of topics related to eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy.

Today’s weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog is about eight considerations for you to be prepared to minimize your organization’s Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial (R.O.T.) effectively. Defensible deletion of R.O.T. within your organization is key to minimizing exposure from a compliance perspective and reducing costs during discovery.  This topic is so big, I can’t cover it all in one post, so today, I’ll cover the first four considerations for defensible deletion and next week, I’ll cover the remaining four.

Even better, the post has another throwback – this time to a popular 70’s TV show that involved a large family.  Can you guess it?  The number of considerations is a clue!  😉  And, yes, I am once again showing my age with this reference.

So, what are the eight considerations for you to be prepared to minimize your organization’s R.O.T. effectively?  You can find out on Ipro’s blog here (well, the first four for now, anyway).  😉  Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click!  And, of course, I’ll still be continuing to write plenty of posts on eDiscovery Today as well!

So, what do you think?  How does your organization minimize R.O.T.?   Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
