Understanding Archival Requirements from an IT Perspective: 7 Guiding Principles for a Defensible & Compliant Infrastructure Strategy – Part One

From the CIO down to the storage administrator, there has been no lack of discussion on new rules for managing data and electronic documents. Everything from regulatory compliance such as Sarbanes-Oxley to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure has made IT aware that they need to be ready to archive more data longer. Yet the most common refrain heard from IT is: I know I need to do something, just someone tell me what I specifically have to do. When legal, compliance, and record management collide with IT, the most typical result is confusion. How do you cut through the fog, and develop specific technical requirements for saving, managing and deleting data in an archival system?

Despite confusion, archiving of data can actually be broken down into fundamental requirements. This white paper discusses seven fundamentals of archiving requirements for a compliant, defensible and consistent archiving strategy. These requirements have been borne through our experience of working with hundreds of large, medium and small companies across a variety of industries, plus a number of public sector agencies. While the level and degree of each requirement may vary from organization to organization.
