Data Minimization: Don't Keep It All Forever

Tuesday, April 13 | 2:00PM–3:00PM | International C (6th floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
Data at educational institutions multiply exponentially and, without proper management, can expose schools to major risks (data exposure, e-discovery expense, escalating storage costs, damage to institutional reputation, and legal noncompliance). The University of Virginia took the innovative step of aligning records management with information security and policy to minimize and protect sensitive information. This session will review the risks of unlimited data retention and highlight strategies and challenges of changing the culture of keeping it all forever.
