The development of technology in data use and storage is faster than it has ever been before. Because of this it is vital that records management and cyber security experts work closely together to ensure that information is handled responsibly and all staff understand what is required of them.
But how often is this close relationship actually the case? What can be done to help facilitate communication of good practice across the business?
To research these relationships, our Information Management Department went on a road trip to the Information and Records Management Society annual conference in Glasgow. We then dashed down to York for the Cyber Security Professionals conference.
At both events we ran an interactive workshop and asked attendees:
- How is the relationship between records management and cyber security experts in your organisation?
- What challenges do you have engaging end users (all staff) in good practice?
- What would you like to see from training and engagement experts to help?
While it’s not possible to make sweeping generalisations, we did obtain some examples of good practice that could be of use to other organisations.
