FTI Technology, the technology segment of FTI Consulting, has teamed with Microsoft to provide data governance and discovery consulting and services for Microsoft Office 365 users. FTI Technology assists companies with a broad range of needs around Office 365 usage to ensure legal and regulatory activities remain cost-effective and defensible.

“Microsoft Office 365 represents a transformational change for organizations, and this migration offers legal teams an opportunity to develop and implement industry best practices for e-discovery and information governance,” said Jake Frazier, a senior managing director and leader of the Information Governance & Compliance Services (IG&CS) practice at FTI Technology. “Using our global expertise in legal, regulatory and technical matters, we’ve helped organizations implement Office 365 so that legal and regulatory requirements are not only accounted for, but are streamlined for easier and more cost-effective management.”  

FTI Technology provides a wide range of services to ensure a cost-effective, safe, and defensible Office 365 migration and implementation, including:

         Data migration: Safely migrate data from legacy archives to Office 365 while active cases are underway

         Data remediation: Defensibly delete redundant, old or trivial (ROT) information to reduce cost and data breach risk

         Legal hold: Update policies and ensure existing holds are maintained during the migration

         Data privacy: Adhere to data privacy regulations impacting how and where sensitive information is stored and transferred

“Cloud-based applications can provide significant cost-savings for organizations, but legal teams must have a seat at the table to ensure that legal and regulatory compliance needs are met,” said Chris Zohlen, a managing director within FTI Technology’s IG&CS team. “Our expertise handling complex legal and regulatory data matters provides us with a unique skillset to meet the myriad of challenges involved in migrating to or supporting enterprise data in the cloud.”

FTI Technology will co-present with Microsoft on a complimentary webcast, “Microsoft Office 365: Maximizing the Opportunity for Legal & Regulatory Compliance,” on March 1 at 1 p.m. EST. To register for the webcast, please visit here.
