Dave Packer, Director of Product Marketing at Druva, discussed the importance of legal compliance during his presentation at the 2014 Chief Legal Officer Leadership Forum: Spotlight on Litigation in Washington DC on June 11. In his presentation, Packer provided tips for establishing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and data management policies.
According to Packer, the areas around litigation compliance are major challenges for many organizations. Litigation compliance is typically a “very many process” for IT departments, Packer said, which creates unique challenges as well. Packer noted transparency is key for litigation compliance: “How do you push this and get kind of the visibility at what we call the edge on these devices? You need to have that visibility; you need to have the right policies in place. You need to be able to pull that data and figure out how to place it on litigation hold.”
In addition, Packer said organizations should devote the necessary resources to understand how data is moved between various departments. Organizations also should try to add multiple layers of data protection, Packer said: “That’s actually what’s really changed, what we’ve seen really alter in the last few years is being able to add these multiple layers of data management protection on just the core data that’s being stored on your end-point devices.”
