Regulatory Issues Prevail

by eBob In reply to Disposal of Backup Media

Have your accountants check into the limits of record retention that they have. This is often something on the order of 5 to 7 years, but may be as long as 20, or more. This often depends on the type of information being retained. Typically, these regulations are built around paper records, but the same PRINCIPLE should apply to alternative media.
