Data Retention Policy 

A data retention policy, or records retention policy, is an organization's established protocol for retaining information for operational or regulatory compliance needs. 

When writing a data retention policy, you need to determine how to: 

  • Organize information so it can be searched and accessed at a later date 

  • Dispose of information that is no longer needed
