Course Description

The information landscape has changed and continues to change in the digital age. The management of information in a corporate setting now requires a different mindset and skills set than before. The traditional approach of managing information in paper format is no longer sufficient for information created electronically. The management of electronic information poses risks and threats that were not previously relevant. An information professional now has to not only be able to advise and to undertake processes relating to the lifecycle of electronic information from creation to destruction but must also be aware of information risk and security issues and requirements. This course is designed to provide expert guidance on all issues relating to the management of information in a corporate context with particular reference to electronic records. The course will provide guidance on current practices and requirements of the field and will apply such guidance to the organization of the course participants.
