BS 10008 launch:
Are you relying on electronically stored information?

Free event

Date: Monday 16 March 2015 (10.30-16.00)

Location: BSI headquarters, Chiswick, London, W4 4AL

BSI has recently revised BS 10008 Evidential weight and legal admissibility of electronic information, the standard which helps organizations manage the implementation and operation of electronic information management systems.

BS 10008 has been developed to help users verify and authenticate their information to avoid the legal pitfalls of poor information storage. It addresses how information needs to be managed by an organization, in an information management system, to enable it to have strong evidential weight and be demonstrably trustworthy with regard to its authenticity and integrity, whenever it needs to be used during its lifecycle. It also outlines the best way in which to transfer electronic information between systems and in migrating paper records to digital files.

Information is an organizational asset that needs to be managed throughout its lifecycle. It is frequently required to be used in and outside of the organization for demonstrating compliance and/or dispute resolution. If the authenticity or integrity of the information cannot be trusted then conclusions based upon it could be discredited.

Find out how your business could benefit from implementing BS 10008, by joining the authors and existing users of the standard at our launch event on Monday 16 March 2015.
