To get a better handle on this ESI problem, organizations should take a long, hard look at the main problem: a lack of any effective enterprise-wide information governance. After recognizing the main problem, organizations can then take action, such as creating an enterprise-wide information strategy, developing use policies and an information retention schedule, and adopting information management automation. These will enable the organization to systematically find, categorize, manage and defensibly dispose of ESI in a timely, cost-effective manner.
