The Ontario Access, Privacy, Security and Records Management Forum is a multidisciplinary event for public sector and health trustee employees. I will be presenting two sessions:
Records Management Certifications: To Certify or Not?
June 19 @ 11:10 AM
Many records management practitioners will consider becoming certified in records management at some point in their careers. What’s the difference between having a ‘certificate’ in RM and being ‘certified’ in RM? Do employers value applicants/employees who are certified? What RM certifications are available? How do they compare? This session will explore the value and importance of RM certification from the perspectives of the individuals who pursue certification, employers and the RM profession as a whole. This session will also identify the requirements for achieving and maintaining the following RM certifications: • AIIM’s Certified Information Professional (CIP) • ARMA International’s Information Governance Professional (IGP) • Certified Document Imaging Architect (CDIA+) • Certified Records Manager (CRM)
The Records Management Implications of Social Media
June 19 @ 1:10 PM
This presentation will provide a brief overview of three social media platforms of interest to public sector organizations: social networking (e.g. Facebook), web publishing (e.g. blogs), and content communities (e.g. video sharing). This presentation will also provide a blueprint for incorporating records management best practices in your organization’s plans for managing the information communicated by and stored in social media technologies. Attend this session for answers to the following questions: • What information can (or should) a public sector organization communicate via social media? • Is social media content a record? • How long should social media content be kept? • How can social media content be captured and stored for future access?
Please visit the conference site or review the agenda for more information. The event will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on June 18-19, and there are special pre and post conference workshops available on June 17 and June 20. Drop me a line if you plan to attend!
