Big data may soon become as important to business and society as the Internet is today. How Big is Big (Factoids): Total Estimated Data Population is 8 ZB of Data Worldwide A Zettabyte = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes A Zettabyte = 1 Trillion Gigabytes (GB) 8 Zettabytes = 62,500,000,000 iPads That’s 880 Years of Apples total iPad Production and The Total Data Volume Doubles ever Two Years
An entire eDiscovery team at your fingertips. Information Governance Reference Model (IGRM)
An entire eDiscovery team at your fingertips. Information Security - You cannot manage what you cannot secure. The 5 Keys to Secure Information Management 1.Identify 2.Protect 3.Detect 4.Respond 5.Recover
An entire eDiscovery team at your fingertips. Privacy Issues in Information Governance – one of the greatest challenges of the management of information are the privacy issues. Increasingly documents and data are subject regulation that forbids or limits disclosure or destruction of data and documents. Examples are: 1.Fair Credit Reporting Act 2.HIPAA 3.Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) 4.IRS Rules and Regulations 5.Immigration Laws 6.Patriot Act 7.Common Law and Statutory Duty to Protect.
An entire eDiscovery team at your fingertips. Information Governance – Foreign Data Non-U.S. based privacy data is a major area of concern for corporations and individuals. 1.Adherence to respective country laws when accessing, collecting, processing employee data (e.g., , file shares, pc, mobile device(s)), even if located on company owned systems. 2.Operational requirements (e.g., global company centralizing computer systems in one location/data center, such as USA, to lower costs and improve support/performance and also provide disaster recovery/business continuity. 3.It is one thing to cross international borders with data to allow for corporate / IT operational requirements, however it is another to actively review and / or process data by collecting, and ingesting data into systems to perform analytics or search for individual content. 4. The definitions of review, disclosure and “processing” are broadly construed. 5.Need employee consent to do many tasks that involve employee data.

Governing Archived Data (tape and other inaccessible data) Information Governance also extends to media that is not live and used for archival purposes. 1.Using tape for archival of data - stockpiling of tapes with no tape rotation. 2.Lesser duty when using tape for disaster recovery vs archiving (data maintained in systems/archive) 3.Accepting the risk of - over years of not being able to identify what is on tape (data type, dates, systems, etc). 4.If you cannot identify the data because of legal requirements to preserving these tapes it becoming virtually impossible to get rid of tapes. 5.Process over technology, it becomes very expensive to restore data, especially if technology has been outdated (software and / or hardware) This process could require specialty services to identify, restore, de-dupe and search large volumes
An entire eDiscovery team at your fingertips. Other Issues in Information Governance Holds - Legal - Compliance (regulatory) - Custodian responsibilities and implementing technical solutions (archive) - Safety Net approach Data preservation -Ensuring data is properly preserved and metadata intact ESI Data Mapping -Identifying what data, where it resides, how it is protected/backup up, how much data/volume and who manages/owns it and has access to it Retention policies - It is not expected for organizations to retain all data for all employees/customers/systems. The burden and cost is too great. Retention policies should be created to keep what is required and purge what is not needed. Data classification -All data is not created equal. Identify what is most critical and/or valuable and the requirements (e.g., state, federal regulations) Costs, prioritization -Know your data, identify requirements -Prioritize, match the correct solution(s) to meet requirements -Control costs and risk
