Information Governance Security & Compliance
The volume of data that businesses generate today is not only unprecedented but continues to grow dramatically at a rate of approximately 30% every year. The onset of the "Big Data" era has created a perfect storm for modern companies—litigation costs have skyrocketed, storage concerns are omnipresent, and exposure to privacy and security threats has never been greater.

Data storage is not only expensive, but is also a key driver of privacy and cybersecurity risks. For a typical company, 70% of the data stored has no operational or legal value. TLS identifies the data that you actually need to preserve and customizes your defensible data disposition plans according to your company's operations, regulatory environment, and resources.
Data Protection Program for Employee Departures
Identification, Imaging, and Preservation
Create forensic preservation images of computers, devices, and all other data repositories accessible to departing employees.
Preliminary Forensic Analysis and Reporting
Identify "red flags" in computer access logs, time stamps, USB history, internet history, lists of deleted files, and trash bins.
Comprehensive Forensic Analysis and Reporting
Investigate flagged cases that show potential theft, and report all breaches including sensitive data.
Expert Consulting and Litigation Testimony
Protect against data breaches by customizing technical and administrative controls, and support data misappropriation cases with expert testimony.
Data Remediation and Hardware Wiping
Remediate misappropriated data from a competitor's infrastructure, and internally recycle hardware immediately following forensic preservation.
Decrease Litigation Costs
In a typical dispute, e-discovery costs make up 60–70% of total legal spend. We shrink your data profile, immediately deceasing litigation costs.
Mitigate Cyber Exposure
We lean your data to enforce a more secure profile, making sure you realize where your company's sensitive and personal data resides.
Save Money on Data Storage
By eliminating digital debris, TLS provides you savings on direct and indirect costs associated with storing and maintaining huge troves of data.
Federal, state, and local regulations overlap with sector-specific standards. TLS understands the complex web of regulatory obligations and builds your intelligent, straightforward retention policy.
