Electronically Stored Information (ESI) Risk Management Part I - Best Practices
This whitepaper focuses on the requirements placed on IT by the amended Rules and discusses strategies and solutions for addressing how to proactively manage electronically stored information.
There are numerous cases where ESI on magnetic tape was determined to be reasonably accessible. It is likely this trend will continue as new technologies and e-discovery services continue to target backup tapes. A sure way to reduce the need to make this argument is to be proactive. Evaluate your historical data ahead of litigation. Identify business records on the media, move it to an archive and apply the appropriate retention periods. When you do this, be sure to include any data subject to litigation holds. Doing so will allow you to make a better case to your legal department that all required ESI is now under the control of an archive and that the historical ESI on backup media can be safely integrated into your tape rotation policy.
