Great job by the presenters in this course. They bring up many good points that really make you think more deeply about the issue.

Very informative and helpful, especially for records managers. Now I can put forward a good case for implementing policies, procedures and retention schedules for records. Surprising how many businesses do not see the value of this.

The information regarding having a procedure in place for defensible email meta data retention and destruction will bring the courts and industry significant challenges in the near future. How can you on a consistent basis with minimal error effectively evaluate what to delete vs what to archive.
