SIMPLIFIED RECORDS RETENTION SCHEDULES
Simple Rules that Employees Can Follow and Can be Automated
With years of experience, the Kahn team has refined and simplified records retention rules. It is a reality that not one type of records retention schedule will fit all organizations. The organization's regulatory landscape, reliance on cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and IoT, its desire to defensibly dispose of records and non-records (i.e., cruds), its litigation profile, its data growth, and the allocated budget all play a factor in the type of records retention schedule that your organization should deploy.
We can provide record retention schedules that range from "off-the-shelf" to highly customized schedules and big bucket rules to detailed record-level schedules. We can enhance a traditional record retention schedule to include the location of stored (i.e., shared drive, applications, etc.), classification of the record (security, privacy, IP, etc.), media type, where information is stored in the cloud, among other things.
