However, the more data an organization retains, the less its value as it becomes increasingly time-consuming to manage, more difficult to quickly access when necessary, and higher risk as a part of a growing corpus of discoverable data.

What does Dodd-Frank Section 1502 mean for you? -- Webcast replay available now
Overview: This webcast is based on the SEC's final rule on conflict minerals, issued August 22, 2012, pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502. We will address the rule itself, how it will affect companies and how they should respond.
On August 22, the SEC issued a final rule on conflict minerals pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502. The rule describes the due diligence and reporting requirements for issuers whose products contain conflict minerals. These minerals – tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold – are used in a wide range of products across numerous industries, and some estimates suggest that at least half of all SEC issuers will be impacted by this rule. In addition, a large number of private companies within issuers' supply chains are likely to feel the pressures of reporting and due diligence as well. Significant reporting and operational changes may be required. On this webcast, panelists from PwC's Assurance and Consulting practices will lead a discussion addressing the rule, its impact, and what companies should be doing now.
