Sedona Conference

An important source of standards and best practices for managing electronic discovery compliance through data retention policies. Regarding e-mail retention, the Sedona Conference offers four key guidelines: (1) E-mail retention policies should be administered by interdisciplinary teams composed of participants across a diverse array of business units; (2) such teams should continually develop their understanding of the policies and practices in place and identify the gaps between policy and practice; (3) interdisciplinary teams should reach consensus as to policies while looking to industry standards; (4) technical solutions should meet and parallel the functional requirements of the organization.
