2011 Information Retention/eDiscovery Survey

2011 Information Retention/eDiscovery Survey

Symantec announced the findings of its 2011 Information Retention and eDiscovery Survey which examined how enterprises manage their ever-growing electronically stored information and prepare for the eventuality of an eDiscovery request. The survey of legal and IT personnel at 2,000 enterprises worldwide found email is not the primary source of records companies must produce, and respondents who employ best practices for records and information management are significantly less open to court sanctions or fines. The report also provides recommendations to help organizations better prepare for an eDiscovery request in order to minimize risks and reduce overall costs.
