Digital continuity training

  • Are you confident that your current IT and information management infrastructure will enable you to access and use your business critical information in the way that you need for as long as you need?
  • Are you going through changes to your organisation, technical environment, policies or processes?
  • Are you confident that you’ll still be able to find, open, trust, work with and understand business critical information afterwards?

The National Archives runs training on how to manage digital continuity within your organisation. This one-day course looks at how to manage your digital information so that it remains usable in the future.   Workshops based on real life scenarios will help you to identify the potential risks to your information and show you how to avoid these.  It is particularly useful for those working in information and records management,  IT, information assurance and change management.
