Operationalising data retention to address privacy compliance



Recent fines for poor data retention practices – including a £275,000 fine imposed by the Information Commissioner’s Office on Doorstop Dispensaree in December 2019 – have increased awareness of the need to ensure that organisations have the right data retention policies and practices in place.

It is estimated that up to 70% of an organisation’s unstructured data is redundant, obsolete and trivial, which creates enormous risk to potential cyber threats, as well as exposure to regulations such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation for non-compliance in handling and deleting data accordingly.

Lexology has teamed up with Exterro to give you answers to the following questions: 

  • Why is data retention so vital?
  • Why is understanding and mapping your data assets so important?
  • What are the risks of getting it wrong?

This webinar will also provide practical tips on how to operationalise data retention and give you the opportunity to ask your own burning questions.

Host Stuart Davidson (Exterro) will be joined by Judy Krieg (Fieldfisher) and Nina Bryant (FTI Consulting).
