For the client, a global telecommunications company, a steady flow of information is critical to serving its customers, from service orders to data needed by technicians in the field. In order for the client to preserve billions of dollars in government contract revenue, the client needs to fulfill the new CMMC requirements by identifying controlled unclassified information (“CUI”) in more than 3,500 applications comprised of approximately 7,000 structured databases and protect the information in methods outlined by the government. The timeline for identification and protection reduced from 18+ months to less than one year and the privacy concerns must be mitigated while not interrupting critical business operations.
Given the client’s lack of a dedicated information governance program and decades of operating without a distinct and enforced email policies, a myriad of obstacles stood in the way of establishing a new approach. FTI would first need to understand the client’s email and file share universe, and identify any information within those systems that was subject to existing legal hold obligations. With that a baseline, the team could begin disposing of unnecessary data and prepare the archive for a new retention policy.
A large gaming company faced multiple, ongoing matters involving vastly different issues and originating in numerous jurisdictions, yet the same key custodians were relevant to most of the cases. Its legal team understood the excessive costs involved with recollecting and reprocessing the same information for each case and set out to find a solution that would enable the reuse of processed data.
