Epiq provides a broad range of consultative and administrative information government experience and services paired with smart technologies, which help organisations plan, execute, and manage information governance strategies.
Information governance (IG) is a cross-disciplinary program for managing an organisation’s data and information in a comprehensive and unified fashion. IG is not a product or a single service or solution. It is an initiative, an ongoing effort to manage information from multiple perspectives with multiple objectives.
Whether your organisation is just beginning to think about information governance or has a mature program, Epiq can help with extensive services.
IG and RIM assessment and road map
This service provides a comprehensive analysis of an organisation’s current state of IG and records management. A road map for addressing risks and guidance on how to implement the road map is delivered.
Records management and retention policies
Epiq helps organisations create practical, defensible, and actionable records management and retention policies, including updating or refreshing existing policies.
Email usage and retention/disposition policies
Since email is often the primary target of eDiscovery, an effective and defensible process for retaining and disposing email can have significant downstream effects on eDiscovery costs and employee productivity. Epiq helps organisations draft and implement defensible, efficient, and workable email policies that leverage technology while addressing legal, business, and regulatory requirements.
Social media policies and cloud governance
Epiq provides expert consulting services on how to manage social media and cloud computing services from a RIM and legal risk perspective. We’ll help you draft policies and procedures, as well as assist with technology selection to address archiving, records management, and discovery of social media.
Backup tape remediation
Epiq works with clients to create a defensible process and procedure to dispose of data residing on backup tapes. Utilising specialized technologies, Epiq can bypass traditional tape restoration methods to reduce the time and costs associated with backup tape disposition.
Epiq consultants and forensic professionals provide expert testimony support to legal counsel in several areas, including meet and confer conferences, support for motions to compel or motions for protective order, defense of process against spoliation sanction motions, and Rule 30(b)(6) testimony.
