Storage at Your Service
By Ellen O'Brien
This trend story on companies' growing reliance on Storage-as-a-Service spotlights Geokinetics Inc., a Houston-based geophysical services company, that backs up its computer servers using Iron Mountain's LiveVault. John Lewis, director of IS for Geokinetics, was looking into products for data management last year when someone suggested SaaS.
"For us, it was a compliance crunch," says Lewis. Fifteen months after a company merger, "I had to get all these diverse locations unified under a single strategy--with no capital investment--and I had to do it pretty rapidly," he says. Today, Geokinetics ships approximately 750GB of data, from applications such as SharePoint and accounting, daily to Iron Mountain. "You have to think outside the box to understand the advantages of the platform," says Lewis.
SECURITY: Paper Shredding May Not Cut It
Investor's Business Daily
July 28, 2008
Many big companies shred sensitive documents to protect security.
A survey says most aren't familiar with federal and state laws governing such practices.
The study by document security specialist Iron Mountain says this leaves them open to fines and identity theft.
Fewer than 1 in 3 were aware of the Federal Trade Commission's Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act disposal rule.
The rule says companies should properly dispose of papers that contain consumer information through methods like burning, pulverizing or shredding. The government says this ensures the information can't be read or reconstructed.

Keeping Yourself Protected When Licensing Intellectual Property
By Saul Marcus
Contract Management Magazine
Contract managers with experience in licensing intellectual property such as software may think they know all the “ins and outs” of the licensing process. They know that placing a copy of the intellectual property into a technology escrow account held by a neutral third party is a best practice for protecting the licensee. However, what many contract managers overlook is verifying that the intellectual property can actually be of use if its developer ceases to do business or fails to provide support.

Iron Mountain announced today that it has begun providing long-awaited data escrow services to ICANN and its panoply of approved registrars.

Time To Take Action Against Data Loss
By Jordan Wiens
November 17, 2007
There's no lack of tools available for mounting this defense. When we said we were doing a story on data security, more than 100 companies offered products. That makes sense, however, since just about everything in security ultimately is about data security. Certainly that's the case with traditional security measures like access control, encryption, and network monitoring. But it's the most recent crop of products focused on the threat of data leakage that we're zeroing in on. (See chart below for a full list of products considered.)

Even good CEOs can pick the wrong direction
By Del Jones
November 7, 2007
The secret to leadership may not boil down to that vision thing. It may not be some exceptional ability to inspire others, nor the courage to zig when all signs point to zag.
Iron Mountain (IRM) President and COO Bob Brennan, a psychology major in college, says his judgment was also clouded by opportunity. He was CEO of Connected, a data backup company, and he remembers the heady days of preparing for an initial public offering. "Suffice it to say, I didn't scrutinize the market well enough," he says. Rather, he listened to market hype and substantially overestimated the value of the company. Finding little interest among potential investors, the IPO filing was withdrawn. Connected later was acquired by Iron Mountain in 2004.
Brennan said it taught him not to let excitement and mood interfere with judgment. He was able to earn group trust and rebuild his team by taking responsibility for the failure. He also learned that failure can reveal true partners and distinguish them from "those who just wanted to be attached to success."

Report: Records Management Still Sloppy
By Christine Dunn
October 16, 2007
New report finds that despite the growing importance of records management to prevent snafus in corporate litigation, only one-third of companies believe they have a comprehensive records management program.
The 2007 Iron Mountain Compliance Benchmark Report surveyed nearly 2,000 people at public, private, government, and nonprofit organizations. Only 35 percent of respondents said they have a formal, enterprise-wide records management policy—despite new “e-discovery” rules for civil litigation that are proving ever more painful for companies whose sloppy recordkeeping returns to haunt them in court.
Records security plans still lagging
October 08, 2007
One of the biggest problems facing companies when they discover a data leakage incident al la TJX Companies is that they finally realize that they don't have a firm handle on just where all their information resides.
It's a story that's repeated time-and-time again by post-breach forensics experts -- whose first job upon being hired after an incident is typically to try and backtrack to figure out just what types and volumes of data have been exposed, and how.
According to a new study from data archiving and storage back-up specialists Iron Mountain, one of the primary reasons that companies often find themselves in this unenviable position is because they lack an enterprise-wide records management strategy in the first place.

Chain of Custody Control:
Key to Information Security and Privacy
Compliance From Iron Mountain
By Joseph DeSalvo
Corporate Board Member Magazine
June 13, 2007
For U.S. companies, information privacy compliance is fast becoming a significant business priority, and not just because data is more decentralized, distributed, and mobile than ever before. The meteoric rise of identity theft, coupled with highly-publicized security breach incidents, has spawned public outrage and customer demand for swift and corrective actions. Lawmakers at both the state and federal level are responding with a growing number of laws that govern the collection, use, and disposal of confidential records. As a result, companies find themselves trying to reassure legislators and customers alike that this information, whether in paper or electronic record form, is protected for safety-and destroyed, if necessary, before it can be compromised.

Enterprises funnel loads of time, money, and energy into the process of protecting in-house data, and for good reason--the existing threats to data are numerous. Yet the moment an enterprise situates employees outside those walls, the rules of protection change. The reality according to Mackowski is that "about 60% of all corporate data is in remote offices and out of the IT department's control."

Richard Reece, chairman and chief executive of Boston-based data management giant Iron Mountain, says the old idea of bulk storage has become redundant because of the speed and precision with which individual items may have to be retrieved.

Laws Force Companies to Truly 'Manage' Data
By Brian Deagon Investor's Business Daily
January 12, 2007
Q & A with Richard Reese - With the explosion of digital data enabling massive collections of records, governments have gotten into the business of specifically defining how information is stored, managed and destroyed. Chief Executive Richard Reese recently spoke with Investor's Business Daily about how companies are dealing with the information explosion and the requirements of record management.
CPA Journal published Brian Murphy's byline,
"Top 10 Records-Management Resolutions for the New Year." As governance needs, litigation pressures, and legislative mandates continue to increase the demand for records management, so does the imperative for companies to develop and maintain an effective records-management program. This article recommends 10 resolutions-five immediate steps for entities new to the area, and five that are key to ongoing success-that can reduce the risks, costs, and complexity of an organization's records-management program.

"Creating a Culture of Compliance; How can you embed compliance into your organization's core"
Compliance within a healthcare organization is not about creating a new department responsible for ensuring the organization satisfies a particular set of regulatory requirements. It's a critical risk management philosophy that protects, or even enhances, the value of your brand in the eyes of your stakeholders (investors, employees and patients). It's about creating an environment where employees want to do the right thing and where employees want to work. Compliance isn't a problem to be solved; it's a way of doing business that needs to be integrated into the day-to-day operations of the business.
