Webinar: Iron Mountain's Top Strategies for Improving Discovery10:16 EDT Friday, June 17, 2011 BOSTON (Business Wire) -- Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the information management company, will sponsor a free June 22 webinar on how large organizations can better prepare for legal discovery. A 2010 Iron Mountain records compliance survey of general counsels, CIOs and records managers at nearly 3,500 organizations revealed that two in five (42 percent) struggle to find information in time to meet discovery deadlines, while 68 percent admit to having no formal program in place for accessing or managing electronic records during the discovery process. The reasons for this include growing data volumes and a “keep-everything” approach to records retention, driving up storage costs and making it tougher to find the right documents come discovery. Hosted by Law.com, the webinar will overview the complexities behind complying with discovery requests. Sue Trombley, director of consulting for Iron Mountain, and enterprise consultant David E. Obarowski, Esq., will offer practical advice for improving enterprise records and information management programs. Attendees will also gain access to an exclusive copy of Iron Mountain's new “Compliance Brief: The State of Electronics Records.” WHAT:   The “Alleviate Discovery Pain: Revive Your Enterprise Information Management Approach” webinar will help attendees: -- Understand the information management issues at the heart of litigation and discovery requests; -- Establish compliant records and information management policies and procedures; -- Develop discovery-compliant records retention schedules to destroy information once it is not legally required; -- Apply discovery best practices to all types of information including paper, email and other electronic documents and data.   WHEN: Wednesday, June 22, 2011, 1 p.m. ET   TO REGISTER: http://www.ironmountain.com/discovery_pain   PRESSCONTACT: Christian T.
