In the current information age, the focus on purchasing larger electronic repositories to retain more and more information has left the disposal part of the document's lifecycle ignored. Efficient storage and retrieval capabilities are essential for organisations to be able to access their information quickly with accuracy and security. Organisations therefore must ensure that they have the policies and processes in place to retain or dispose of the information they need in a compliant and relatively risk free environment that supports their business needs. This masterclass covers retention and disposal of records in accordance with accurately researched legislation and regulations and shows how it can be implemented within the organisation's business processes and governance framework. It will provide techniques to assist with implementing a comprehensive retention schedule with accurate up to date legislation and regulations as supporting auditable references. It delves into the mysteries of the law, conflicts between laws and answers the question just how necessary is a records retention programme to your organisation.

This session is aimed at anyone who may be involved in information governance and records management including, lawyers, company secretaries, information officers and IT staff. Delegates will be asked to fill in and return a questionnaire before attending the masterclass, to ensure the day's content is tailored to the needs and interests of those attending.
