Keep what you need, protect what you can

Data Lifecycle Management - Cyber Security - Enterprise Content Assessment
Data Regulatory Obligations, Security and Privacy


Effective information governance boils down to two guiding principles: keep only what you need and protect everything that you can. Getting it wrong risks violating regulations, stumbling when facing an investigation or a critical loss of data – all of which come with serious financial and reputational damage.


Data lifecycle management

Control Risks understands that solutions have to be right for the business, so we work to fully understand your business needs. Creating the cultural shift in your organisation so everyone understands the importance of data and its handling is a key challenge. Stakeholders such as legal departments, IT and the business may have the same goal, but often have competing priorities.

Data lifecycle management frameworks are used by our experts to classify data across thousands of network shares and repositories. Control Risks will study and design workflows to identify, collect, analyse and remediate information - working directly with your teams to present solutions.

Data regulatory obligations, security and privacy

We work to secure information, protect your digital assets and meet regulatory obligations wherever you have operations. We work with record management teams to scan thousands of document types across local and virtual networks to identify and remediate documents.

Data protection requirements are particularly acute in the healthcare industry, where data may contain personal identifiable information, healthcare references, names, related illnesses or hospital patient codes. Control Risks exercises utmost care in handling and examining critical data assets.

Cyber security

There is no data security without cyber security. Once you know what you have and have defensibly dispensed with what you do not need, Control Risks’ cyber security experts can build an effective and compliant defence, scaled proportionately to the importance of your data. They work seamlessly with our technology solutions experts to create a structured and defended data architecture.

Enterprise content assessment

Understanding how your organisation generates data and how that content relates to business activities, corporate compliance and records management is increasingly important.

Control Risks assists organisations with thinking through the lifecycle of data creation and how such content should be organised and searchable, how the information should be under custody, and ultimately helping clients protect data as a corporate asset.

As users create data from business collaboration and documentation of their work, it is necessary to assess how that enterprise data becomes an asset to the organisation.

Can China build its way back to the Middle?

For thousands of years, Chinese people have thought of themselves as the Middle Kingdom. Being in the “middle” has connotations of political, economic and cultural power, yet in recent centuries, Europe and more recently the United States were the centres of global power.
