Over-retention of data is a major data privacy risk. US and international regulations specifically require that companies ensure their retention standards are up-to-date and enforced, and that all obsolete records containing regulated sensitive data are disposed of promptly.

By implementing defensible data minimization strategies across your organization you can significantly reduce your costs and risks. Data you don’t have can’t be breached, and you don’t have to produce it during litigation or for data access requests.

You will learn:

  • How to best implement data minimization strategies that protect your company’s data and your organization
  • What key data retention considerations you should be considering
  • The vital role technology plays in automating and identifying the right data to delete.
