The world is packed with information; and most organizations struggle to recognize what information they have, why they need it, how long they need it for, and if it has any value. Furthermore, changes in law, such as the recent changes in the UAE employment law, often call for tighter controls on contract documentation, and lead to a need for enhanced management of human resource and contract records. In addition, electronic information is under threat from cyber-attack and personal information is at risk of exposure. As such, the development and implementation of a records management program that includes document control methods to identify, secure and protect critical information, is necessary for every organization.
This course conveys practical methods for identifying and developing the systems of records management and document control that an organization needs. By the end, each participant will have a plan of action as well as the necessary skills to assist with the development and implementation of an appropriate program for managing their organization’s documents, records and information.
This course is highly interactive and utilizes methodology including group discussions, case studies, videos, participant presentations and problem solving scenarios.
This course is designed for individuals who manage, or who are involved with, any aspect of document control and records management. This includes records and information managers, in-house counsel, privacy officers, information security and protection managers, litigation and discovery staff, compliance officers, internal auditors, IT and enterprise content management professionals, and administrative managers.
