SRA Competency D


It is difficult to manage growing volumes of electronic content, identify it as a record, capture it in the right location, keep it for the right length of time, and meet all the other requirements of good records management compliance with the various information laws, regulations and standards. Making sure your organisation is records management compliant will reduce or mitigate your chances of things going wrong with the relevant information legislation in place, as well as your reputational and financial risk.

You risk being fined millions if you fail to keep adequate records or for improper record keeping. This interactive workshop will cover the core governance requirements for any organisation to set up compliant records management best practice in any electronic document and records management system, and how to embed it within your organisation.

  • Where do you start to achieve records management compliance and benefits?
  • How can you organise your organisation's records and information when you don't know what they hold?
  • Are your records vulnerable? Is your organisation at risk of failed record keeping and what are the consequences of that?

At the end of this workshop you should be able to understand the key business and legislative requirements and drivers, key terminology and the basic principles associated with managing records and information. This will include the management of emails, records and information systems, making sure content can be found, accessed and used by those who need it, when they need it, to do their day to day jobs.
