All organisations, private or public, need to plan and formulate policies and procedures enabling them to remain competitive and provide good service to their customers. This is also highly advisable in term of protection of the trade secrets of your organisation. The GDPR provides that personal data may not be kept longer than necessary for the purposes for which they are processed. Accordingly, organisations must define clear data retention and records management policies and enforce them. A retention policy offers guidance and provides a framework for staff to manage information across its lifecycle, so that the entire organisation complies with the various laws and regulations pertaining to data management.
