The Geneva-based International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is concerned that organizations are not properly prepared for the world of digitization that has arrived. This interesting information came from Image and Data Manager in their article, “Are you in control of your records?

Records are critical to any organization. Companies that operate under a risk management program identify the high-risk areas within their activity and take steps to maintain adequate records to mitigate those risks. Unfortunately, not all organizations have risk managers assisting them.
