Record policy - UK
Posted on 2011-03-08
What are the realistic risks to an organisation who dont have a records management policy and information classifacation policy? And on the flipside what are the benefits to an organisation to have such policies?
In the UK now their is a drive to have such policy for freedom of information legislation, but I dont really see how the 2 link together. FOI is basically where member of public requests informationm about the company and the company has to respond within 20 days. So where does not having a records management policy affect that and hamper the ability to respond in 20 days, and same for information classifacation, what does having such a policy help in the way of FOI, and what does not having such a policy affect in being able to respond in 20 days.
