Making Sense of RIM

With data growing at an exponential rate, it's hard to keep track of it all!  There are a lot of decisions to make about how to best store and manage your company's data.  How should I store: hard copy or electronic?  Where should I store my data: in a vault, on-site or off-site, in a data cloud?  How should my data be managed; what retention schedules, compliance, and accountability should be applied to my data?

Keeping current with the latest laws and regulations regarding data management can also prove challenging.  FACTA, FERPA, FOIA, GDPR, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, HIPAA, and the Privacy Shield are important pieces to your data puzzle.  

Thankfully, Kent Records has a subject matter expert in all these matters.
