Question: Max 90 days of audit logs?

In one of my meetings, one of the new requirements was to keep a audit logs only for 90 days. Up to this point, the audit logs were kept for 1 year. This was according to a new mandate that I am not familiar with.

What is the reasoning behind mandating a shorter period of audit logs? I can understand if it was stated as keeping a minimum record, but not even allowing more logs seem odd to me.
