How Information Management Earned Respect In The Boardroom

Pam Doyle writes eloquently on Information Governance in this CMS Wire post from 3/29/16-

Until recent years, records management has been a behind-the-scenes operation. Today, driven by the plethora of highly visible data breaches, the exponential growth of digital data, regulatory demands and the need for digital transformation to support insight and intelligence, records management has been thrust into the spotlight.

This has not been simply a shift from the back office to the front office, but rather from the back office to the boardroom.

What were once considered records management activities are now part of a broader range of practices and strategies that have been labeled Information Governance (IG).

The IG Umbrella

Coalescing under the Information Governance umbrella are privacy, security, accessibility, lifecycle management, auditability, insight and much more. The information governance stakeholders start at the top with C-level executives and include line-of-business managers, information management professionals, legal, compliance and IT….

Email Records Management- Part 1: The Truth

Smaller EmailA few years ago I wrote a widely-read and somewhat controversial article explaining why I no longer supported the US DoD 5015.2 records management functional standard. Up to that point, I had spent most of my records management career working very closely with DoD-certified products and publicly criticizing the 5015.2 Standard would ultimately cost me a great deal of income (and more than a few professional relationships).

But in the end, I don’t regret doing it. As a career records management professional, I had simply gotten to the point that I could no longer sit quietly along the sidelines and watch a horribly constructed standard continue to wreak havoc across the information lifecycle management landscape. And while a few misguided vendors and consultants continue to push their decade-old products and services based on the DoD Standard model of records management, most fair minded industry professionals have since moved on…

SO 30302. Management system for records. Guide for implementation already published!!

A new product of the series of standards ISO 30300 is now available in ISO store. A preview is available in https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:std:iso:30302:ed-1:v1:en.

ISO 30302:2015 is intended to be used by any organization implementing a MSR. The standard follows the same structure of ISO 30301 in order to facilitate the implementation of each requirement. It is organized to explain in each clause:

a) the activities necessary to meet the requirements of ISO 30301
b) inputs to the activities – these are the starting points and can be outputs from previous activities;
c) outputs of the activities – these are the results or deliverables on completion of the activities.

In following weeks we will sttart dicussions in this group to comment guidance provide for each clause in the standard. Hope to have feedback to share with the group.

The Lifecycle of Information – Updated

Information Governance-101

Organizations habitually over-retain information, especially unstructured electronic information, for all kinds of reasons. Many organizations simply have not addressed what to do with it so many of them fall back on relying on individual employees to decide what should be kept and for how long and what should be disposed of. On the opposite end of the spectrum a minority of organizations have tried centralized enterprise content management systems and have found them to be difficult to use so employees find ways around them and end up keeping huge amounts of data locally on their workstations, on removable media, in cloud accounts or on rogue SharePoint sites and are used as “data dumps” with or no records management or IT supervision. Much of this information is transitory, expired, or of questionable business value. Because of this lack of management, information continues to accumulate. This information build-up raises the cost of…

Edward R. Murrow would be 107 today

brianarogers

He was born 107 years ago today, on April 25, 1908, in Polecat Creek, North Carolina. His parents named him Egbert Roscoe. The family name was Murrow. They were farmers.

We know him today as Edward R. Murrow. If not the father of modern electronic journalism, as some contend, he was certainly present at its birth.

When he was about six, the Murrow family left North Carolina and moved to Washington state where his father became an agricultural laborer. Later the senior Murrow worked on logging railroads.

Egbert Murrow loathed his first name and, while in high school, changed it to “Ed.” He was valedictorian of his class, but worked a year as a lumberjack before having enough money to enter Washington State College. Murrow later explained that being “Ed” rather than “Egbert,” saved him from having to fight every other lumberjack on the West Coast.

Initially, Murrow majored in…
