  • Existing storage systems do not protect records from unauthorised change or corruption,
  • The archive team do not have the tools required for effective search and retrieval of digital holdings
  • Holdings rely on file formats and storage media that are becoming obsolete
  • Current archive infrastructure cannot manage the volumes of digital data produced

The implications of which could be:

  • Financial penalties resulting from inability to provide evidence of compliance with regulation. Damage to the organisation’s reputation and loss of stakeholder confidence,
  • Inability to produce reliable and authentic records necessary to pursue or defend legal claims, undermining the organisation’s ability to reach resolution or making settlements more expensive,
  • Loss of corporate memory, inability to rely on past evidence to inform current decisions,
  • Failure to comply with organisational policy in relation to management of records (reliability, authenticity, usability etc.),
