Assessing Trusted Systems for Compliance with Industry Standards and Best Practices
Have you had an ANSI/AIIM 25 compliant records assessment performed? Are your records being stored and managed as required by regulatory agencies and government codes and regulations?
Whether your organization is looking to evaluate an existing system that houses electronic document and/or records or is involved in document retrieval for litigation or regulatory purposes, EID’s experienced legal and technical staff can help you understand the vulnerabilities, risks and mitigation approaches. For more than two decades EID has been a leader in identifying and documenting the industry best practices as it relates to the systems that store electronic information.
Content Records Management
The electronic content/document management (ECM) industry is represented by AIIM International (Association for Information and Image Management). This association is the ANSI accredited standards setting body for the ECM industry, AND provides varying levels of accreditation for those people providing ECM related consulting and design services.
Our staff includes people with the highest accreditation available within the ECM industry: Laureate of Information Technology in Workflow and Laureate of Information technology in Document Imaging/Management. Additionally, other senior staff members have the MCSE certification, extensive networking experience associated with technical architecture and design and the CDIA accreditations,
There are approximately 30 people internationally who have both Laureate accreditations and approximately 70 people internationally who have a single Laureate. EID is managed by one of these people who have both accreditations thus ensuring the highest level of industry recognized skill and expertise.
If you don’t have a trusted electronic records system, your business or organization can face fines, compensation claims or business suspensions for a compliance breach. You have to keep your clients’ data safe.
