Epiq Launches Information Governance Services to Manage Sensitive Legal and Corporate Data
Epiq, a global leader in the legal services industry, has announced enhanced information governance services to help clients efficiently and compliantly manage their electronically stored information in all environments, including on-premise servers, in the cloud, or in hybrid systems.
Moving to the cloud increases internal collaboration capabilities and can be a transformative shift for high performing businesses. Epiq's capabilities are targeted at helping companies, globally, drive efficiencies in their business, control their data management and e-discovery costs, as well as reduce the risk of regulatory-related fines.
Epiq's capabilities have substantially increased since 2018 when it acquired Controle LLC, an information governance-focused SaaS software and professional services firm, according to Roger Pilc, president of legal solutions, Epiq. "With the additional expansion of our global information governance practice, Epiq is uniquely able to provide clients with the industry’s most robust and efficient tools to control digital information and mitigate regulatory, compliance, and security risks.”
The new information governance services at Epiq include:
- Data compliance: Microsoft Office 365 data compliance enablement services at Epiq help clients configure solutions to address requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation, the California Consumer Privacy Act, and other data privacy laws and processes, including data subject access requests.
- Data migration: Epiq supports migration of legacy workloads and disparate data stores to the cloud, including email, SharePoint files, on-premise files, and social media data.
- Data security: Microsoft Office 365 data security services at Epiq help clients enable the complete suite of services offered in the Office 365 Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS) Suite. The service manages security breach identification, incident response, security score improvement, and data breach notifications.
Epiq is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and participates on the Microsoft Security and Compliance Partner Advisory Council, which is an invitation-only council of experts who advise on Microsoft 365 product development.
