An organization’s data — whether stored on servers, in the cloud or on employee devices — presents both challenges and opportunities in today’s highly regulated business environment. As data volumes increase, challenges include safely and defensibly mining corporate data to find and act upon key information quickly, storing sensitive data such as client information and intellectual property, securing data against internal and external threats, and disposing old or redundant data to reduce storage costs and risk. With the expert data remediation support and advisory of FTI Consulting, these can be accomplished with minimal business disruption.

From our years of working in and with organizations, we understand how failing to manage backup archives drives up storage costs and increases the likelihood that information found in backup sources will be used in future legal matters. We’ve seen firsthand how this can further drive up the cost of e-discovery and expose organizations to unnecessary risk. Our approach is to create a plan to systematically evaluate and reduce your preserved backup tapes, update your disaster recovery policy, and include provisions to safely eliminate backups after a set period.

To ensure that nothing important falls into the wrong hands, organizations must scan and quarantine all sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII) and trade secrets. Our experts help create new security safeguards for data. Such systems automatically alert your information governance professionals of unsecured data in a breach, identify and remediate data, and scan for data on “BYOD” devices before employees leave the organization.

Let us help you better optimize or replace your existing archive, migrate legacy data to new platforms, and safely remediate the old applications and the data contained within. In addition, we’ll ensure that your data from social media and messaging platforms is aligned with legal hold or regulated retention policies.
We know that messaging is one of the most relied upon systems in an organization, yet we see that many organizations are close to the breaking point due to rapid data growth and outdated processes. We help re-evaluate which mailboxes, archives and user email files (like PSTs) you need to journal, archive or remediate. We can develop and implement these policies, including auto-deletion and storage quotas, in the context of evolving technology and legal requirements. Setting and enforcing the right policies can increase end user satisfaction and productivity while reducing risk.
If you frequently respond to preservation obligations, your forensic images can quickly accumulate.
If you frequently respond to preservation obligations, your forensic images can quickly accumulate. This stockpile of images can become a costly pool of electronically stored information subject to discovery. We reduce your cost and expense by updating your master list of legal holds, scanning old forensic images for only the data that must be held, remediating any unneeded data, and bringing this pool into better alignment with organizational goals. In addition, we can work with you to refresh and enforce policies for managing workstations when employees leave or join the company.
