2013 May Cover Story
30-Second Summary: A defined workflow process, strategic planning, thorough documentation, and clearly defined roles and responsibilities are all important elements of implementing a defensible disposal practice. The first step involves forming a team. In assembling the core team, consider including representatives from legal, IT, records management and business units. Members of this team should have knowledge of corporate policies, programs, systems, processes and records management practices, and should have relationships with outside vendors who may store or manage the company’s data. The next step of implementing a defensible disposal practice involves assessing current practices and requirements; be sure to determine whether there are any special circumstances that may need to be taken into account with regard to certain data sets. Finally, develop a project management plan.
