Data Remediation at Private Equity and Hedge Funds Webcast by HaystackID: eDiscovery Webcasts

Data remediation is one of the most important and least discussed areas of an Information Governance program. Here’s a webcast from HaystackID which will discuss best practices for handling big data and provide tangible field-experienced methods for data remediation!

Tomorrow, HaystackID will host the webcast From Strategy to Tactics: Data Remediation at Private Equity and Hedge Funds at noon ET (11am CT, 9am PT).  In this presentation, our presenters, experts in enterprise risk management, data privacy, legal operations, and cybersecurity, will discuss best practices for handling big data and provide tangible field-experienced methods for data remediation. These best practices can be implemented at your firm, proactively warding off adverse outcomes when facing an audit, investigation, regulatory request, litigation, or cyber breach incident.

Webcast Highlights:

  • A programmatic approach to Information Governance brings together key stakeholders across lines of business, ensuring all compliance obligations are satisfied
  • Prioritize which guidelines are vital to understand and which controls are essential to implement
  • Understand data risk and value enabling informed decisions for data disposition based on metrics and KPIs

Private Equity and Hedge Funds are notorious for never deleting anything unless required because that information “may be needed” in the future. But when looking at your overall data landscape regardless of geography or data type or system or repository, there is a constant large portion of data that could easily be identified, segregated, and disposed of: redundant/duplicative, outdated/obsolete, and trivial/no value to the business (“ROT”). Why choose to hold onto risk by storing useless data that could be remediated? Click here to register and learn how to get started with data remediation in your organization!

So, what do you think?  Does your organization have any programs in place for data remediation? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
