Legal Hold

Establish, prepare and automate processes to govern content under Legal Hold.

While organizations employ Legal Hold to avoid risk and comply with preservation obligations to both inside and outside counsel, challenges often arise around the vetting and accuracy of what content to keep under Legal Hold. Which data? Whose data? For how long?  With changing custodians, access controls, and data privacy concerns, counsel are increasingly challenged with having to sift through what’s relevant and what it is not.

Valora’s approach to managing Legal Hold uses the PowerHouse AutoClassification Suite to:

  • Perform content analysis to properly identify appropriate content subject to Legal Hold
  • Exclude irrelevant content and Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial data (ROT) from weighing down data stores
  • Tag enterprise content with file attributes and rich metadata such as doc type, custodian, dates, keywords, retention dates, and more
  • Apply automated rules for disposition handling
  • Remediate content coming off Legal Hold
  • Automate ongoing, perpetual analysis & disposition of all relevant content

Valora’s Powerhouse platform offers a better way to manage Legal Hold using AutoClassification.
