It will also be used by integrators and developers of information management systems that provide facilities to meet user requirements.

  • Records/IT managers
  • Compliance officers
  • Legal advisors in financial institutions

Why should you use BS 10008-1:2020?

This British Standard specifies requirements for the implementation and operation of electronic information management systems. This includes the storage and transfer of electronically stored information (ESI).

The aim is to enable users to maintain the authenticity and integrity of the ESI, so that it’s trustworthy and is either accepted without dispute or successfully resists challenge. This is important in circumstances where the ESI might be used as evidence – whether for business, compliance, legal or other dispute resolution purposes.

BS 10008-1:2020 covers:

-        The management of the availability of ESI over time

-        The electronic transfer or communication of ESI

-        The linking of electronic identity to particular ESI, including the use of electronic signatures and electronic copyright systems, as well as the verification of electronic identity

-        Ways to authenticate encrypted information and electronic signatures

-        How to migrate paper records to microform or digital format without compromising quality

The standard also includes requirements for the stewardship and accountability of the management of ESI throughout its life cycle. It applies to ESI in any form, including general office documents, electronic images and information held in databases and other electronic systems. The ESI can be alphanumeric, image based and/or voice/video recordings, captured from static and mobile devices.

Benefits from using the standard include improved efficiency, increased trust and better managed risk as well as:

  • Better processes in place to deal with copyright, tracking and verification issues
  • Reduced paper use that contributes to environmental credentials and reduced paper storage costs
  • Better alignment of the organization’s information security policies
  • More straightforward long-term information management including easier migrations during technology upgrades
  • Stronger business continuity and resilience – electronic information can be backed-up and protected more effectively than paper records at risk of physical damage
