DMware: Documents as Evidence
Technorati Tags: DMware AIIM C22 Standards "Evidentiary Support" "Records Management"
Over the years, the AIIM International sponsorship of standards has included fostering of committee C22 on Evidentiary Support for Electronic Information. I just learned that C22, which is tied to ISO TC171/SC3, is being rebooted. I confess that I lost track of this work and I'm heartened to see announcement of its rejuvenation:
Although the evidentiary nature and use of electronic information, including documents and source code, is not the most exciting thing for Information Technology organizations to be concerned about, understanding the importance and the risks of how electronic information is managed is becoming increasingly important.
It occurs to me that the folks who object to the ISO Standardization of DIS 29500 (Office Open XML) would place a different spin on the invitation's headline. I think the spirit of this announcement is clear even if the headline is a little over the top.
I also think work to make the legal implications of IT policies and practices around electronic information more understandable is very important. It is one of those odd situations where it is desirable to make discovery (and auditing) more efficient because of the burdensome cost that it can involve, while also making sure that electronic information is destroyed at appropriate times to avoid the secondary burden of witch-hunting by discovery. C22 is a forum where knowledgeable people worry about that tension and how to delimit it.
