How to Gauge Your Records Audit Readiness

Nearly everything we do in business produces a record - whether it is a document, email, or transaction. These records help us make decisions in our organizations. Records are important for establishing what is known and when a person or the organization knew of an issue.

In order to best use the records, it is important to make sure that the control, storage, and use of records occurs in the “normal course of business” and demonstrate that the records accurately reflect a particular state in time. Records can also be a liability.

Third party audits of records management policies, procedures, and technologies are important to demonstrate that the organization complies with the regulations, standards and best practices of the industry. How often you audit is based on risk, changes in laws and regulations, and changes in business processes or staffing.
