What We Do

UNIFIED GOVERNANCE

By developing transparent and secure information structures, integrated policies, tactical procedures, and training, we help you build a framework for unified and legally defensible Information Governance (IG). Then, our Compliance Helpdesk provides ongoing support that enables sustainable compliance.

POLICY DESIGN AND INTEGRATION

Even the best IG policies will have limited impact without proper implementation, communication & training. Cadence Group will help you design an integrated IG policy covering IT, records, privacy, security, data breaches, & eDiscovery. We provide expert guidance through the entire change management process to facilitate implementation.

PROCESS TRANSPARENCY

Cadence Group works closely with our clients to understand the context in which their business operates, analyze key processes, and consider how existing technology can be leveraged to facilitate IG. With the implementation of transparent information structures and integrated policies, all components of the organization are positioned to build collaborative and transparent processes.

PRIVACY AND SECURITY

In the era of Big Data, a robust IG framework is vital. Cadence Group helps clients uncover areas of information and entitlement risk and provides them with a road map towards identifying and protecting data from all threats.

MITIGATING LEGAL RISK

Cadence Group’s consulting team of Certified Records Managers, Archivists, and Information Governance Professionals works with the client’s legal counsel and CIO to develop preventative (vs. reactive) strategies to mitigate legal risk. Our legal research team leverages over a decade of experience and its repository of legal citations from all 50 states and 39 countries to facilitate cost effective legal and regulatory research to ensure proper retention and privacy controls. We can then update your Records Retention Schedule based on the research results, best practices, and the organization’s risk mitigation strategy. Then Policies, Procedures, and Training promote compliant behavior across all levels of the organization and provide structured protocols for responding to legal holds, data breaches, and discovery.
