Accountants have always struggled with retaining and destroying records, and with increasing fear about data security and litigation, a firm's data retention strategy has a significant role in managing these risks.

This session will provide insights for practitioners on some of the current trends and challenges in data retention, and will help practitioners better understand their risks and obligations in this brave new world of technology.
