With technological data innovations comes a plethora of new data, and companies are being overwhelmed with enterprise data which can be a liability. 

Ensuring the right data retention policies in place can protect businesses from unauthorized access and refocus usage on business needs. With recent regulations such as GDPR, how can data retention policies keep up to ensure data is properly managed and utilized throughout its entire lifecycle?

Join us in a panel session as we uncover the hidden challenges of data retention and minimization. We will cover the Fair Information Practice Principles for data minimization, practical data retention policies that work and the impact of data lakes and how to govern them.
