Iron Mountain on the IT Pro podcast: Learning to live with risk
We’ve all cut corners at work to get things done; taking shortcuts is part of human nature. But what drives us to seek these shortcuts, and what potential implications can they have for employers? Is this behaviour something to be stamped out, or should organisations embrace it as a way to improve their efficiency? In this IT Pro Podcast with Iron Mountain's Phil Shepley, we’re taking a look at the most common risks that people take in the workplace, how that compares to the risk appetites of businesses in different industries, and how technology can be used to bring the two closer together.

Why Automation is an Information Governance Game-Changer
Information governance is growing in complexity as the volume and variety of information that organizations must manage expands at unprecedented rates. Automation is needed, but the task is so large that many organizations don’t know where to start. Our experts are here to help. Getting a handle on information begins with understanding what you need to keep and what should be discarded. Data hoarding exposes organizations to risk and adds to complexity. Automating information governance isn’t an-all-or nothing proposition. Take an incremental, deliberate approach, focusing on the areas with the highest ROI. Digitize as much as you can and apply governance policies from the moment data enters the organization. The payoff is along many dimensions: improved business agility, more responsive customer service, reduced risk of data breach and better regulatory compliance. Speakers: Rob Gerbrandt, Managing Director of Information Governance Consulting, Iron Mountain Steve Lester, Corpora…

Is it data? Is it a record? Is it information?
Putting structure to information is a key factor to making sense of it, and an essential building block to structuring your data is classification.

In this 30 minute session, hosted by Sue Trombley, our speakers discuss common challenges in defining and organizing information and the relationship between data and records. They will share tips on conveying the importance of information classification to internal stakeholders and managing it all in a compliant manner.

Making Smart Interconnected Choices
The global colocation market is expected to double by 2024 and interconnection is one big reason. Interconnection services enable businesses to exchange data with each other at extremely high speed and low cost using direct connections instead of public networks. Customers can also use the services to connect to multiple cloud providers and to leverage the most cost-effective carrier networks. Accessing the cloud via dedicated connections within a colocation facility can cut bandwidth costs by 60% compared to using the public Internet. Interconnection has grown in importance as the average enterprise has grown to use 2.3 infrastructure-as-a-service providers and two platform-as-a-service providers while nearly tripling the use of cloud applications over a three-year period. Nearly every colocation provider offers interconnection services, but the scope and terms vary widely. It’s important for customers to look for partners that offer them the greatest degree of choice with the…

Iron Mountain Digital Mailroom Gives Paper Mail a Digital Makeover
Paper mail is still critical to the way businesses operate: 80% of companies still use paper checks, 70% of invoices travel by postal mail and 40% are sent by fax. But the Covid-19 pandemic has made managing that mail a lot trickier for many organizations and those challenges could last well into the future. Iron Mountain’s Digital Mailroom is a full document digitization service that converts an organization’s paper mail into digital documents. Those documents can then be routed electronically as well as tagged, searched, stored and archived according to information governance policies. In this podcast we learn more about how a digital service can relieve business managers of mailroom worries during Covid-19 and why this may be a good time to take a fresh look at the business benefits of digitizing documents at the point of delivery. Joining us are Iron Mountain’s Helene Fox, Senior Advisor for Global Technology and Anke Conzelmann, Director of Product Management.

The Secret Sauce for Complying with Privacy Regulations
In the wake of new privacy regulations in Europe and California that empower consumers with greater control over how data about them is collected and maintained, several other countries and states are considering similar legislation. Organizations that collect data will be challenged to meet new deadlines and ensure that information is collected, protected and disposed of properly. At the recent AIIM Conference Iron Mountain Corporate Counsel Steve Lester presented his recipe for information governance practices that keep data safe, secure and also available for timely compliance with consumer requests. He summarizes his recommendations in this Modern Governance podcast.

Why the APAC Data Center Market Is Growing So Quickly
In a recent article on Data Center Frontier Michael Goh related some of the reasons why data center capacity is growing so quickly in the Asia/Pacific region. Among them are rapid advancements in consumer applications of mobile commerce and the huge populations in countries like India and China that still have relatively low data center capacity. While the COVID-19 pandemic will cause some slowdown in growth projections, the long-term prospects are still very bright for companies that are building data centers in the region. Michael joins us to expand upon his views.

Physical Meets Digital: Privacy Is Your Responsibility
It hasn't been long since the implementation of Europe’s GDPR, and we’ve already seen fines surpassing the €100 million mark for British Airways and Marriott International and, potentially, fines running into billions for Facebook. In addition, there are the costs which are much harder to quantify, like reputational damage and the urgent need to implement privacy by design as a default. It’s hardly surprising that consumers are growing ever more distrustful in a time when personal privacy faces a constant assault from global corporations; consumer-facing online services being among the biggest offenders. Never before has it been made clearer that it’s time to rethink the way companies collect and use consumer data.

Physical Meets Digital: Embracing Digital Transformation on the Journey to Information Management
Records and information management has become a driver of digital transformation, bringing about an organisation-wide culture change tasked with putting privacy and security first. But to become truly data-driven, and meet the demands of compliance in a post-GDPR world, information professionals face the challenge of getting vast troves of digital and physical data and printed records in order. For compliance, they need to think about information lifecycle management. To derive insights that drive business growth, they must think about data quality and authenticity. The list goes on. In this podcast, Iron Mountain’s Director of Global Engagement Sue Trombley speaks to Scott Sammons, Chairman of the Information and Records Management Society (IRMS) to discuss the challenges and solutions facing RIM professionals in the age of digital transformation.

7 Steps to Preparing for California's New Consumer Privacy Laws
The California Consumer Privacy Act, which is the first significant state privacy law passed in the U.S., takes effect on January 1, 2020 and it has broad implications for all but the smallest businesses. Under the terms of the new regulation, California-based companies that either generate more than $25 million in annual revenue, have personal information on at least 50,000 consumers or derive at least half of their annual revenue from selling customers’ personal information must disclose upon request what personal data it collects and whether that data is sold or disclosed. The law also gives consumers the power to have their personal data deleted upon demand. Iron Mountain has been preparing to comply with the law for some time, and it has defined a seven-step process for doing so. In this podcast, host Paul Gillin speaks with Steve Lester, Iron Mountain’s corporate counsel in its Privacy and Compliance team, and Kelly Matoney a principal partner in Iron Mountain's Informatio…

Compliance Standards are Your Friend in Mitigating Colocation Risk
Many organizations use data center colocation providers to complement or even replace traditional on -premises data centers. When choosing a provider, the IT team typically looks for sound infrastructure, strong physical security, ample bandwidth and other technical fundamentals. But they may overlook a factor that my guest believes is just as important: compliance. Colocation providers who are certified compliant with a broad set of standards and regulations offer customers peace of mind that their equipment and data receive the highest quality of support and protection. But not all colocation providers are alike when it comes to compliance. Keeping up with changing regulations and audits is time-consuming and expensive, so some vendors support more standards than others. Support may even very between locations operated by the same vendor. In this podcast, host Paul Gillin interviews Jim Henry, Global Compliance Analyst for Iron Mountain Data Centers about the standards that matter…

These are the Top 5 Network Challenges of 2019. Are You Ready?
With the volume of data that organizations collect expected to grow tenfold over the next six years, the challenge of accommodating so much new data while providing acceptable service levels and doing it all on a budget is front-and-center for IT executives. Edge devices like sensors and cameras will generate data volumes that exceed the capacity of many of today’s enterprise networks and will require rethinking how many applications are built. Networks will need to scale up and down flexibly and economically. Many new cloud migration options are springing up, giving customers choice but also creating network complexity. These factors need to be managed within the context of an increasingly demanding regulatory environment and growing cybersecurity challenges. As general manager of network strategy and services at Iron Mountain, Frank Scalzo builds the resilient and scalable networks that customers will need years in the future. In a recent article on DataCenterFrontier.com, Frank…

Data Center Power Demands Are Fueling Environmental Emissions; Here’s How to End the Spiral
Data centers consume about 3% of global electricity capacity each year and power demand is doubling every four years. The world demand for computing power seems to be insatiable, and billions of smartphones and internet of things devices have fueled the need for increased capacity of the back-end cloud data centers that serve them. All this demands power. Storage devices, network switches and cell phone towers all consume electricity. Faster processors not only require more power to run but also create the need for bigger air conditioning and liquid cooling systems, which also run on electricity. With 80% of the world’s electricity supply generated by fossil fuels, the environmental impact of computing growth is becoming more severe. Fortunately, solutions are emerging. Highly efficient “lights out” data centers that use cooling from natural resources are significantly reducing overhead costs. In many areas, solar, wind and nuclear power are viable power-generation alternativ…

How Machine Learning Changes the Rules of Business and Information Management
Machine Learning is here, and for many industries and disciplines, things will never be the same again. This category of artificial intelligence enables computers to tackle many tasks that are too complex for humans, such as analyzing millions of healthcare records in search of adverse drug interactions or extracting data from paper documents that can be loaded into digital databases. The ability of machines to understand documents and images will require changes in the way we manage and govern information. The Association for Information and Image Management recently completed a study of corporate decision-makers and found that more than four in five consider machine learning to be key to their future technology and business plans. In this podcast John Mancini, Chief Evangelist and Past President of AIIM, and Jim O’Dorisio Senior Vice President of emerging commercial applications at Iron Mountain dissect the findings of the research and predict what will be some of the biggest imp…

The Privacy Rules Changed in 2018 - What Does that Mean Going Forward?
Between GDPR in the EU, similar legislation in other countries, the controversy surrounding the way social networks handle personal information and the ongoing drumbeat of breaches and data theft, the issue of how organizations should exercise responsible care of personal information was one of the biggest stories of 2018. Coming at a time when big data and analytics is making it possible for organizations to understand their customers with unprecedented degrees of precision, the privacy issue creates new complexities for those who manage and govern information. Analytics and profiling practices need to be balanced with compliance, security and customer sensitivity needs. Going too far can subject an organization to public embarrassment or legal action. On the other hand, not going far enough can leave it at a competitive disadvantage. As we head into 2019, Modern Governance invited Iron Mountain Privacy Principal & Practice Leader Kelly Matoney and Director of Professional Services…
