Mimosa Systems™, a leader in Live Content Archiving solutions, today announced it will host Best Practices for Email Retention and eDiscovery, a half-day educational seminar to be held in New York City on July 17 that will provide practical advice on the creation and deployment of email retention policies for corporate governance and eDiscovery support. The event will be held from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm at the Microsoft offices, located at 1290 Avenue of the Americas, Sixth Floor.
Best Practices for Email Retention and eDiscovery will feature, Bill Savarino, a partner in the Washington, DC-based law firm of Cohen Mohr LLP, who specializes in legal issues involving email retention, government contracts and security. At the seminar, Savarino will draw from his 25 years of law experience to discuss best practices for email retention and electronic compliance through case studies about how enterprises have approached these challenges.
“Businesses are experiencing both rising costs and a greater volume of eDiscovery requests associated with litigation,” said Bill Tolson, director of compliance and legal solutions marketing at Mimosa Systems, who is also a featured speaker at the event. “This seminar is designed to provide practical tips and advice that companies can immediately put in to action to improve their eDiscovery preparedness.”
According to recent Gartner research1, “The use of technology, especially e-mail and the Internet, has changed the legal discovery environment. Most organizations do not have the systems and policies in place to deal effectively with e-discovery.” In addition to developing a document retention policy that supports the needs of the business and has the ability to destroy information when it’s no longer needed, Gartner recommends that organizations “Use technology to automate whenever and wherever possible regarding document retention and management.”
