Are you looking for a Records Management consultant? Do you need to write a Records Management or Information Management Policy? We can help. Policies and associated procedures can be designed and implemented to offer guidance and the corporate authority that information is controlled as an asset, with uniform standards applied throughout the organisation.
As information is increasingly utilised and retained electronically, the questions of capture and classification, security and protection, legal admissibility and evidential weight, retention and disposal, formats and preservation etc. must be addressed.
We offer consultancy advice in the following areas:
Risk Assessment of Evidential Weight
A gap analysis and action plans to ensure compliance with BIP0008 and related standards, "A Code of Practice for Legal Admissibility and Evidential Weight of Information Stored Electronically".
Policy and procedure ensuring that physical files and records are managed and tracked from file opening, through closure and archiving to ultimate disposal.
The management and control of retention, appraisal, disposition and preservation actions to ensure that you meet customer, legal and regulatory requirements, whilst also lowering the risks of legal costs and sanctions.
Business Classification Scheme
The institution of a corporate file plan to ensure that information is organised in a uniform and coherent manner; and can be identified and located as required. This will address issues relating to metadata, security and disposal schedules.
The institution of an information security management policy and security classification scheme to ensure that information is protected from unauthorised access, misuse, loss or change - meeting BS / ISO 7799 standards.
The inclusion of information assets within disaster recovery and business continuity plans to ensure that they are protected from cases of major equipment, environmental or personnel failure.
