Applying the GARP Maturity Model to Your Organization (GARP - Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles)
Does your organization see records and information as an asset? What does it mean to have an organization compliant with recordkeeping requirements? Is your organization’s information protected to ensure business continuity in the event of security violations, physical damage, confidentiality ‘leaks’ of sensitive information, and other actions and uncontrolled events?
Records and recordkeeping are inextricably linked with any organized activity. As a key resource in every operation of today’s business environment, records must be created, organized, secured, maintained, and used in a way that effectively supports the activity of that organization. These needs can be fulfilled only if recordkeeping is at the root of all activity. To achieve this transparency, ARMA International developed the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles (GARP) for organizations to adhere to records and information management standards and principles. Without adherence to these standards and principles, organizations will have poorly run operations, legal compliance failures, and – potentially – a mask for improper or illegal activities. This session will focus on:
1. Describing the purpose of the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles
2. Explaining the intent of the GARP maturity model and various levels
3. Identifying the process to measure the maturity level of an organization
4. Providing insight into the possible future of GARP
