  • Description

    The ease and low cost of electronically saving information has become so accepted that few think twice before hitting the save button. These days, it seems there is no file, email or text message not worth saving. But as companies are beginning to realize, everything has its price and the instinctual saving of information may come to haunt a company when information that could have legitimately been deleted becomes a factor in litigation. Furthermore, as technology continues to evolve at a shocking rate, transferring these mass amount of information from one system to another can be more costly than initially anticipated. This CLE course will review why and how companies should develop data governance systems to manage information in the identification-collection-preservation-deletion cycle and present experts in the field on the challenges of data preservation. The course will explain defensible deletion, best practices for its implementation and how to maintain a defensible litigation hold in the face of data deletion.
