What is Records Management?
Records Management is the management of information resources in a manner that makes information easily accessible, securely protected, stored and disposed of when no longer required for administrative, legal, executive and operational functions.
The core concept is the life cycle of information, which sees information having a series of phases from creation to final disposition, either through a controlled destruction process or being added to the permanent archive.
