It’s Time to Dump the Junk: How to Defensibly Delete Data

August 22, 2021 | By Niamh Bennett

The fact is, today, companies are creating, collecting, and storing WAY too much data. How many times have you stumbled across a personal iTunes library or a company potluck sign-up from 5 years ago? Corporate file shares are filled with huge amounts of non-business-related files, orphan data, social media records… the list goes on.

This redundant, obsolete, and trivial (ROT) data not only takes up space but also poses a significant risk. The best way to mitigate this risk lies at your fingertips – literally. All you have to do is hit “delete”. But we know this is easier said than done – how do you discover what you have? Once you understand the data you have, what do you actually do from there? How do you overcome the practical barriers and risk aversion that hinder data reduction?

Join experts from ActiveNav and MC Bernstein Data as they share a practical roadmap for reducing your biggest information risk using defensible deletion and data minimization.
