ISACA: Policy and technology key to reducing e-discovery risks

Having the right policies and technology in place is key to reduicing e-discovery risks, according to IT governance organisation ISACA.

To help enterprises effectively search, classify, preserve and present information that is stored electronically, ISACA has published a free Electronic Discovery .

The whitepaper provides steps to identify and mitigate the risks related to potential litigation, and helps organisations establish a formal e-discovery programme.

ISACA, the information security association for 95,000 IT professionals, recommends the following steps:

-Assess regulatory requirements specific to the organisation

-Ensure the proper mix of policy, process and technology to reduce reliance on any specific individual and maintain consistency
