Course Materials


An explosion of corporate scandal in the last several years gave way to a stringent regulatory environment for records retention, with Sarbanes-Oxley leading the way.

Complying with document retention standards under SOX and other laws is costly. However, failing to comply or allowing inefficient document management skyrockets the expense of corporate readiness for discovery and investigations — and exposes companies to sanctions and other penalties.

Listen as our authoritative panel offers practical strategies to reduce risk associated with information management and preservation and provides their perspectives on court decisions impacting document retention standards.



The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • How does Sarbanes-Oxley heighten the demands for an effective
    document retention program?
  • What are the business consequences and legal risks of inadequate
    information management?
  • What is the impact of court decisions in the past few years on
    document retention standards and practices?
  • What are the elements of a strong document retention program?
