As an information management professional, you know that one of your most critical tasks is to protect your organization's vital records. The loss of such mission-critical information can disrupt your organization's continuity, if not halt it altogether. This course focuses on the relationship between the two key components in business continuity: a vital records program and a disaster recovery plan. By having a vital records program in place, an organization can more rapidly recover from an adverse incident.

In addition to making a strong business case for a vital records program, the course looks at potential threats to vital records and at the protection methods commonly used for them. It also discusses the basics of a disaster recovery plan and its benefits. The course closes with guidance on how to sell business continuity to senior management and how to implement and monitor the program. You will come away with a fundamental understanding of how to protect vital records and help ensure your organization can position itself for rapid business continuity.

This course includes Vital Records, at a reduced rate as part of your purchase.

This online course is full of practical, real-world solutions you can put to work immediately in your office. Each section contains audio and review questions, and you can download printable course notes for easy offline reading and review.
