Defensible Disposition

Objective: Eliminate unneeded data using defensible retention and disposition practices for paper and electronic records and information.

Challenge: Adhoc data management left to employees with little or no guidance which can lead to over retention or inappropriate deletion. Proliferation of duplicate documents and data in multiple repositories, with no clear ownership. Legacy data in inaccessible or discontinued applications and repositories. Expired and low/no value information retained indefinitely.

Contoural: Create easy to use retention schedules for consistent policy guidelines. Analyze unstructured data repositories and develop enterprise strategies for data placement. Define associated system policy settings and file plans for identified repositories. Develop data migration/disposition plans for existing and legacy data collections of documents. Create new processes for employee productivity and data control, resulting in the right data being saved for the desired period of time.
