Introducing our new book series on Evidential weight and legal admissibility of information stored electronically – Code of practice for the implementation of BS 10008
Information is central to today’s business world – and it presents a growing risk. Establishing the authenticity and integrity of electronic information is increasingly important. But digital media can be more perishable than paper, and there is continuing uncertainty about the legal acceptability of electronic information. So BSI has published a series of books by Peter Howes and Alan Shipman to help organizations manage electronic information reliably.
Part one of the series deals with stored information. It gives guidance on how to ensure the authenticity, integrity and availability of stored electronic information over long periods, especially through changes in technology where the integrity of information may be at risk. These factors become even more important when information may be used as evidence in disputes.
As a guide to good practice for setting up and running electronic storage systems, the book describes how your organization can:
The new fifth edition extends the scope of the fourth edition, to include information stored in a wider range of electronic systems. It has also been revised in light of updates to BS 10008 - which describes how information should be managed to ensure that it is demonstrably trustworthy - and the book can be considered a guide to implementing that standard.If you are involved in information storage, then this book has the information you need to cut risk and ensure reliability.
