Risk & Compliance
When I was a kid, every now and then my dad would pick me up at school and take me out to lunch. Sometimes it was a reward, but other times—the best times—it was just because.

They served amazing enchiladas with made-from-scratch tortillas, double chocolate shakes made with chocolate ice cream and Hershey’s syrup, and old-fashioned lemon meringue pie.

Establishing an effective data retention policy is a key step in managing and protecting one of your organisation’s most valuable assets: its data.
But retention can be very complex and poses many challenges to organisations—challenges that must be overcome now that recent data protection regulations like the GDPR enforce organisations to address their data retention practices, or risk facing severe consequences.
