Best Practices for Effective Information Management
In 2006, amendments and improvements were made to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and though they were well-intentioned, the new rules have led to more confusion, complications and disputes over data and systems compliance. One of the biggest tweaks was Rule 37(e) - the "safe harbor" provision - which essentially lets you off the hook for electronically stored info that your computer or email system - not an admin - deleted.
One positive that's resulted from the confounding Rule 37(e) is that it requires organizations to make information management plans. And, one of the first steps of your information management plan should address your storage infrastructure and procedures. This white paper explains (in layman's terms) how you should approach Rule 37(e), from storage setups to data retention policies. Read on now to learn which storage technology is the best fit for compliance in today's climate.
