With any kind of disaster or event (and COVID-19 certainly qualified) there is opportunity for change, growth and rehabilitation.  While technology played an increased role to enable work during quarantine, it also created a set of challenges to manage a public record as the final outcome of a business process.

The focus of the educational mini-series is to manage a public record as a digital records.  Across four sessions, you are going to learn how to prepare, rehab, and look at what can be the “new normal” for records management as the world around you evolves and changes.

You can get ahead of the power curve.  You can get more done in less time. © 

These sessions will be held once weekly starting Thursday, October 15 at 11:00 AM.

Thu, Nov 12, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST

It’s a digital world.  When it comes electronic records there are many nuances to manage.  Whether you are a newcomer or a seasoned veteran, an Executive Director or Information Technology professional, this course can both refresh and promote the best practices to accomplish this within your agency.

This first session covers the legal requirements for electronic public records, plus common terminology and language when managing digital information

Topics include:

  • A review of legal requirements for public records for electronic records.
  • Common terms and definitions for electronic records.
  • An overview of standards – the ISO 15489 and the DoD5015.2.  What are they?  What do they mean?  Why are they important?

Session 2 – Assessing the Situation (1 CEC Category E – WAPRO)

Thu, Oct 22, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

Were you and your colleagues prepared to work remotely when agencies closed due to COVID-19? Was there a plan in place to deal with having no access to records or scrambling to enlarge capability?

This session, loosely based on ISO 15490 and the principles of disaster planning and preparedness, covers the process to assess the situation and any “damages” from the quarantines.

Topics include:

  • A breakdown of the steps to conduct the assessment.
  • Results and outcomes of each stage.
  • Planning for rehab & recovery.

Thu, Oct 29, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

There are thousands of software applications out there, and new ones pop up all the time!

This session describes how to navigate through the process of sorting and making sense of the options. It’s a constantly evolving industry, and what’s trendy now might not actually WORK for what you really need. When it comes to public records, certain choices can have unintentional consequences and costs. How do you choose “the right stuff” for your organization?

Topics include:

  • Talking to IT about records management.
  • Criteria to use for writing an RFP.
  • Standards to utilize when evaluating and choosing a system.

Thu, Nov 5, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

Many have taken the opportunity during quarantine to clean closets and drawers and apply fresh paint, so why not take the opportunity to do some electronic records cleaning up?

This session is how to do defensible disposition – legally and defensibly cleaning up electronic information in your shared drives and servers. You don’t want to just move the mess or simply do a “data dump”. Cleaning up is one of the projects you can start now in preparation for implementing Enterprise Content Management.

Topics include:

  • “Got floppies?”.
  • How to defensibly clean up emails.
  • How to defensibly clean up drives/servers.
  • “Scrubbing” data.
