According to the recent Cohasset | AHIMA Information in Governance Benchmarking Survey, only 34% of respondents strongly agree that they have mature policies around retention management. Yet effective retention policy management is required not only to achieve compliance, but also to controlling costs and risks, and providing a foundation for governance across the enterprise.
