Data Retention: Minimize Privacy Risks and Maintain Compliance
Establishing an effective data retention policy is a key step in managing and protecting one of your organisation’s most valuable assets: it’s data.
It’s estimated that up to 70% of an organisation’s unstructured data is ROT - information which is redundant, obsolete and/or trivial – which creates a huge amount of risk to potential cyber threats and exposure to privacy compliance in regulations like the GDPR, CCPA or the other 700+ privacy laws around the world.
Recent fines for poor data retention practices, including a €14.5 million fine issued in Germany towards the end of 2019, have created further awareness of the need to take data retention seriously and to ensure organisations have the right data retention policies and practices in place.
Join Odia Kagan, Partner and Chair of GDPR Compliance and International Privacy at Fox Rothschild LLP, alongside Debbie Evans, Group DPO at Rentokil, and Stuart Davidson, European Marketing Director at Exterro (Moderator) to explore why establishing effective data retention practices will minimise privacy risks and maintain regulatory compliance.
