Businesses need to ensure their staff are trained and confident in how they would respond to the threat of litigation.
Organisations have a responsibility to halt data destruction processes and preserve potentially relevant documents when litigation seems likely.
On an internal level, the definition of 'likely' needs to be agreed in order for all aspects of the business to work together when they need to.
Creating a clear policy and then setting this in writing and disseminating it to those who will be affected is the first important step.
Only when employees feel confident in the steps they need to take in the disclosure process, will the whole thing run smoothly.
Keeping staff informed is also important to reduce panic during dawn raids, so that disclosure is achieved more quickly and efficiently.
As companies can face sanctions for disclosure failures or missing deadlines, making sure everyone works together is vital.
