RMU – Spring 2018 Semester

The seventh semester of RMU will consider records management and its intersection with evidentiary discovery, record production for litigation and record preservation. As the custodian of the organization’s “at risk” electronic and physical record assets, understanding your role in the evidentiary process is critical to yours, and the wellbeing of the organization. What potential exposure do you, as the records manager, have if the process fails to produce the requested records?
