In today’s data-driven economy, a sound information governance program is at the heart of risk management. At FORTÉ, we put our clients in control of their data.
GOOD INFORMATION MANAGEMENT IS GOOD RISK MANAGEMENT.
Information is often organizations’ most valuable asset, but with the deluge of electronic communications and consumer data mining, it is also an asset whose exploding growth in quantity does not necessarily correspond to its net long-term business value.
Emerging privacy and cybersecurity laws and regulatory regimes — including California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) cybersecurity regulations — create a regulatory risk landscape that promises to become even more complex as more jurisdictions assert their priorities. It is time to take a holistic and tailored approach to mitigating data risk.
DATA HOARDING IS OUT.
DATA MINIMIZATION IS IN.
Our experienced legal and data-management professionals guide organizations through a comprehensive assessment of their information assets — from customer data to trade secrets, company policies, and internal communications — to decrease data risk, reduce future e-discovery costs, and achieve sustainable operational efficiencies.
We collaborate with stakeholders throughout organizations to establish tangible information governance objectives. We then evaluate the organization’s information assets, and work with clients to either implement new programs or refine their existing ones to rebalance business needs and risk profile. The result is an organization focused on its business instead of drowning in information with marginal long-term business value.
We provide clients with advisory services, leveraging technology as applicable, to assess and optimize data management. We work with clients to:
- Draft, revise, and implement information governance policies and procedures to conform with privacy and security laws and regulations
- Evaluate data retention schedules to ensure compliance with business objectives and regulatory and legal requirements
- Assess, implement, and manage legal-hold processes
- Conduct litigation readiness assessments
PEOPLE. PROCESS. TECHNOLOGY.
Our legal perspective, extensive e-discovery experience, and practical information governance capabilities provide organizations with a multidimensional perspective of their information assets: from privacy and security to information management, litigation risk, and knowledge management.
We formulate the optimal combination of people, processes, and technology to help organizations move their businesses forward and remove the digital debris that drive up e-discovery costs, regulatory and data breach risks, and operational inefficiencies.
