Preservica joins the Information Governance Initiative to support preservation of long-term digital records

Preservica, the digital preservation specialist, has become a ‘Supporter’ of the Information Governance Initiative (IGI), and will join forces with the think tank for a quantitative research project to benchmark the unique challenge of protecting long-term digital records.

The IGI is supported by a number of leading information governance providers, and aims to promote the adoption of information governance strategies in the protection of corporate data. Preservica’s partnership with the IGI demonstrates the growing importance of digital preservation in the overall information governance lifecycle, ensuring that data is findable, useable and trustworthy long into the future.

With technology refresh occurring at an ever increasing rate, digital content and records are at serious risk of being lost forever as the hardware and software within which they are stored becomes obsolete. Digital preservation technology is fundamental to protecting and future-proofing the vulnerable and vital information that many businesses require to be retained as a matter of law.

As part of the collaboration, Preservica and the IGI have launched a Research Initiative on the Preservation of Long-Term Digital Records and Information. The survey aims to discern how organizations are currently handling their records and information management, and gauge industry awareness of the risks surrounding current practices.

Some forward-thinking organizations are already leading the way in adopting digital preservation as a core facet of their information governance strategies. In the last twelve months, Preservica has partnered with world-leading global organizations across a variety of sectors, including HSBC, Transport for London (TfL) and the Associated Press, in order to safeguard their digital assets.

Jason R. Baron, Co-Chair at the Information Governance Initiative, said of the collaboration: “I am delighted that Preservica has joined as a supporter of the IGI. An increasingly important facet of information governance is the ability of institutions to provide long-term preservation of records and information of all kinds, in trustworthy formats. This is true both in the public and private sectors where soon there will be millions of records in electronic form, appraised as long-term and permanent under existing records schedules, all of which must be preserved and made accessible. I look forward to Preservica’s important contributions to the IGI.”

“The importance of digital preservation is rapidly rising up the information governance agenda” says Jon Tilbury, CEO Preservica. “We look forward to working with the IGI community to share and discuss the challenges of ensuring long-term and permanent digital records remain usable and accessible into the future.”

Information Governance and Records Management professionals are invited to participate in the Research Initiative, which is now live.
