Records management rules require that we deploy safeguards to protect the electronic audit trail. It is relatively straightforward to automate one’s interoffice memo system; simple email will suffice. That does not allow one to assume that the archival copies behind each message are preserved in a form suitable for use as evidence should the need arise. Traditionally, this has been accomplished by preserving paper copies, often stamped as “official” or “archival” copies and set aside in corporate “document archives”. Our challenge as we further automate our business processes is to preserve sufficiently compelling electronic data as to replace paper proofs.
