ZyLAB Offers Guidance about eDiscovery
November 21, 2011
ZyLAB goes back to the content lore about records management in “eDiscovery and Information Management: Factors that drive solid records management.” The piece emphasizes the importance of meeting legal obligations and points to several sources for guidance: the UK National Archives, the National Archives of Australia, and the US Department of Defense. However, it also acknowledges that crafting a records management program is a highly individual effort:
Although regulatory guidelines exist, every organization is different. . . . There are basic tenants and principles to good records management—not just in terms of ‘managing records’ but also in terms of creating a positive impact on the organization’s overriding knowledge management goals—but this construct doesn’t mean that there is a ‘one size fits all’ solution to every situation.
The article helpfully suggests ZyLAB’s 8-Point Inspection tool for assessing an organization’s data management needs. Clients from corporations to government agencies use this industry leader’s robust tools to cover their backsides.
This is an interesting write up, and a reminder that the content management systems for Web sites are destined to be a hassle.
