Event: Driving the long-termpreservation of electronic records, Oct. 9 - 11

Found on a discussion list.

Ark Group presents the 2nd annual two-day conference:

Driving the long-term preservation of electronic records in your organisation
Developing an effective strategy to manage and retain your digital records
9-11 October 2007, London

The need for digital documents and data to be stored and safeguarded in the long-term is becoming a future business-critical issue. The rate of change in computing technologies is such that digital content and information could be rendered inaccessible and unusable within just a few years...

Ensuring you can have access to and can continue to use your organisation's digital resources is an absolute business and compliance imperative. But digital resources will not survive or remain accessible by chance - a robust digital preservation strategy is required. Ark Group's 2nd annual event 'Driving the long-term preservation of electronic records' has been designed to help you preserve commercial electronic information and combat technological obsolescence.

Following on from the success of last year's conference, we have created an event which explores ways for you to record and preserve your organisation's information for future reference. Throughout this two-day event we will look at how to identify areas of risk; engage the business; preserve the varying types of information found at your organisation and ensure an accessible repository.

Speaker highlights include:
  • Frances Boyle, Executive Director, Digital Preservation Coalition
  • Ian Hodge, Services Manager, The National Archives
  • Richard Wright, Archive Technology Manager, BBC Future Media & Technology, BBC
  • Dave Thompson, Digital Curator, Wellcome Library
  • Roger Lloyd, Barclays Wealth Archive Manager, Corporate Real Estate Services, Barclays
  • Simon Hopkins, Senior Conservator, West Sussex Record Office
