Find out how to keep your company’s records safe

December 27, 2011 by  

The Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) is presenting the seminar ‘Protect your Company’s Records’ on February 13, 2012 in the GBC boardroom from 7:30-9:30 am. This is part of the GBC Speaker Series; tickets are $25 for members and $50 for non-members. A continental breakfast will be served.

The seminar will be led by Timothy F. McCormack of Ballard Spahr LL.P. and Doug Peters of the Metropolitan Archives. The seminar will be asking if those in attendance follow any protocols when it comes to email, such as whether or not it needs to be protected and if internal emails can be used in a court of law. They will also get advice on how to deal with the so-called ‘paperless’ office and how they can apply record management principles to digital records. And, as we are not at the stage where paper is not produced in offices, they will learn the best ways to:

“archive, file and receive company documents.”

Whether we admit it or not, we are still along way away from the paperless office. One of top things in any business budget is printing; companies in Baltimore are not different. Learning how to preserve and safeguard those printed documents is vital to the continuation of any company. This seminar should answer many of the questions that business leaders have about protecting their records and safeguarding company secrets. The seminar will also give them a chance to network with fellow business leaders who share their concerns.
