10 Steps to Establishing an Effective Email Retention Policy
Building a well-planned, enterprise-wide email retention policy helps establish uniform and consistent rules for all email and electronic records. Such a policy outlines email content, sets retention and deletion criteria and provides the flexibility to accommodate litigation holds and enable role-based user access.
Leveraging a robust Information Governance solution helps simplify the management of this process. The ideal solution should automate retention policy enforcement and task documentation, while providing an archiving and retrieval engine that streamlines an organization's ability to locate messages for audits, litigation and eDiscovery in a timely and cost-effective manner.
