Corporate legal and IT collaborate to identify and address preservation risks that result from a hybrid data environment.
The duty to preserve does not cease when an organization migrates data systems. In fact, not only does the duty persist, but it becomes more complex.
Corporate legal teams must collaborate with IT to define a migration plan with processes that defensibly preserve data despite the complexity of a hybrid data world with half in the cloud and half on premise. Since data is not in one place dual processes are required to ensure compliance is maintained throughout migration.
“In-house Elevated: How In-house Legal Teams Mind the Gap When Migrating to Office 365”, written by Zapproved Sr. Product Manager, Sarah Thompson addresses the considerations legal and IT teams will need to consider to safely protect discovery data during the period of migration to Office 365 and mind the preservation gap.
