A Turnkey Solution for Data Retention
Data retention consists of processes and technologies used to manage and preserve data over time. This includes storing data in a secure and accessible manner, ensuring data integrity, and complying with legal and regulatory requirements for data retention periods. It can involve backup and archiving technologies, as well as data management policies and procedures. Data retention solutions are critical for organizations to effectively manage their data and maintain compliance with regulations while also enabling them to access and use historical data for analysis and decision-making.
Data Retention for Telecommunication Industry
Considering the telecom industry, data retention is the process of preserving all records and subscriber data for various telecommunications services for a period of months and years. However, this data does not include the content of a communication. Access to retained telecom data is seen by law enforcement agencies and intelligence services as a critical component of modern crime investigation and terrorism prevention. Retained electronic data is frequently utilized to identify and trace suspects, uncover terrorists’ social networks, and gather admissible evidence for court proceedings.
