Digital continuity training

  • Are you confident that your current IT and information management infrastructure will enable you to access and use your business critical information in the way that you need for as long as you need?
  • Are you going through changes to your organisation, technical environment, policies or processes?
  • Are you confident that you’ll still be able to find, open, trust, work with, and understand business critical information afterwards?

The National Archives runs training on how to manage digital continuity within your organisation. This day long course is workshop based and covers planning for action and defining your requirements, assessing and managing the risks and maintaining digital continuity. We provide attendees with imaginary and real life scenarios to enhance understanding of digital continuity and how it can apply to every organisation. It is particularly useful for those working in information and records management,  IT, information assurance and change management.
