INFORMATION GOVERNANCE POLICIES

Balance Risk, Cost and Data Growth

We help organizations negotiate and draft the appropriate information management policies to meet their business and regulatory needs. This allows companies to reduce risk, decrease storage footprint and cost, and eliminate the burden from the employees as much as practicable. 


Kahn builds solutions to meet the unique organizational needs, because one size does not fit all. Each organization has different business needs, regulatory landscape, technology in use, and budgetary constraints. Over the last two decades Kahn has worked across most industries advising small to Fortune 100 companies that have global footprints.

For most organizations, reasonableness is the answer.  The Kahn team can help your organization get your information under management.

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 organizations 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 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.
