Data Retention Policy
July 12, 2006
The organization is subject to data retention requirements resulting from a mix of legal, industry, and business mandates. These data retention requirements govern the storage of the organization's information, records, and data. Regulations dictate that different data types be stored for specific periods. They also dictate the media storage format that must be used to store specific data types.
The organization's Data Retention Policy exists to ensure all organization information, records, and data are retained and stored in compliance with legal, industry, and business regulations. It includes a policy you can customize to meet your needs as well as a risk assessment spreadsheet you can use to judge just how much your organization is at risk by not having this policy in place.
