How To Delete a Lot of Emails and Files Quickly and Defensibly

Presented by

Dan Elam, VP and Consultant, Contoural

About this talk

Sometimes there is a mandate to delete large quantities of emails and files very quickly, either after litigation or simply because senior management gets fed up with too much electronic junk. When needing to delete a lot quickly, traditional “manage and let expire over time” approaches don’t work. On the other hand, blanket, delete-everything approaches can run afoul of record retention and legal requirements. What’s an organization to do?
