How do I respond to the rising flood of unstructured data in a records management context?

What steps should I take to protect my organisation’s records in the event of a disaster?

How should I license my agency’s intellectual property under creative commons?

These were some of the key questions explored by a team of expert presenters at the Record’s Management Network (RMN) meeting in May, hosted by Public Record Office Victoria (PROV).

Held at the Treasury Theatre, East Melbourne, the event featured five guest presenters and was well attended by 130 records and information management professionals.

Alan Kong, Manager Standards and Policy at PROV explains that the wide range of topics covered at this year’s first RMN reflects the increasing complexity of the records management landscape. Technological change and the move to a digitally-dependent economy call for a range of strategies and tools to ensure good records management practices.

The program had a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ flavour with advice from the presenters about how agencies themselves can manage risk and improves systems in areas such as information governance, disaster preparedness planning and intellectual property assets. The presenters’ slides are available on the events & networks page of this website.
