10:40 – 10:55 – Integrate Digital Preservation into your Information Governance Program

Lori J. Ashley


Advance your understanding and advocacy for long-term electronic records preservation


Organizations of all sizes and in all sectors keep information and records as long as necessary to meet a range of legal, financial, operational, regulatory compliance and memory purposes that are driven by their unique mission, history and objectives. For permanent and long-term (10+ year) records that spend their “lives” in electronic format, the risks and threats from technology obsolescence should be systematically considered and proactively addressed.


This presentation highlights the critical roles that practitioners can play to educate stakeholders on the impacts of changing technologies and to advocate for digital preservation strategies and capabilities to be integrated into their enterprise records and information management programs.
