Update, update, update your document retention policies!
Posted on 02/26/2011 at 10:01 AM by The Newsroom
With the increased online activity in business, companies should take time to review and update document retention policies sooner rather than later. Many companies probably already have policies addressing email systems, but these may need refreshing. Because more and more companies have become active on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, it's also wise to review or update document retention polices to ensure the scope will cover such social media activity. To the extent you have different policies addressing different technologies or communications, businesses should ensure they're consistent. (Companies may want to avoid multiple policies if it's possible to draft one that's broad and flexible enough to capture all electronic communications.)
