This resulted in increasing storage cost and revamping of data governance policies. As a public sector body, it was a key requirement to retain all data in a tamper-proof archive and adhere to all the essential compliance regulations.
Ken realised the need for the right software to control the compliance of their data and control the storage cost. As part of his role Ken and his team are responsible for the email management and compliance of the Trusts data.
