As the data asset of businesses continues to grow, it is clear that great swathes of data will need to be deleted.
This not only makes managing the remaining data much easier, but it means it is simpler to locate information, smoothing the path for the day to day running of the company, as well as business continuity after a disaster.
As data comes in from so many angles, social media and customer contact to name a few, businesses often get duplicated information, while archiving files means that firms hang on to them for much longer than they legally need to.
However, when it comes to compliance, businesses often need to provide data for disclosure reasons that they need to ensure does not get deleted.
For this reason, businesses need to consider introducing a clear deletion policy.
In this way, unnecessary data is removed but all legal requirements are met, avoiding the potential for fines and reputational damage.
