Solution Showcase: Files Cleanup and Beyond: Defensible Deletion, Retention In-Place, and More
Date : Monday, May 20th
Time : 4:00–5:00 PM
Where : Little Big Stage
Description :

As file shares grow, risks expand, intensifying interest in files cleanup. However, as new data accumulates, cleanup becomes a constant game of catch-up. The only way to keep pace is by implementing a governance system that continually cleans and repurposes data across critical functions like compliance, records, and privacy management under regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. Learn how to eliminate duplicates, reduce costs, and facilitate privacy across enterprise data.

  • How to take a strategic view of the data management challenges in GDPR and CCPA
  • How to repurpose the data (and slash costs) to solve other governance issues such as eDiscovery, compliance, and records management
  • Methodologies in evaluating and comparing different privacy/governance solutions in the marketplace

The Right to be Forgotten: How to Actually Find and Delete Personal Data
Date : Tuesday, May 21
Time : 2:00–3:00 PM
Where : 4th Floor Addison
Description :

There’s a lot of talk about the “Right to be Forgotten,” granted by GDPR, CCPA and other privacy regulations that require companies to find and delete a subject’s personal data upon request. But what does a search for a particular individual’s personal data actually entail? Personal data is not always easily searchable across silos, enterprise-wide, and one must reconcile each document’s entire hierarchy of functions, such as Records Management, eDiscovery, and Compliance before deleting anything. The should-be simple process of remediating personal data becomes highly complex and time-consuming without the right framework. This session will explore how to truly perform a search for a subject’s personal data, and how to efficiently evaluate its various functions before remediating it for compliance.
