Building on their 1995 groundbreaking book on electronic records retention, David Stephens and Roderick Wallace have authored a comprehensive new book that defines a practical methodology for applying the principles of records retention to computer-based recordkeeping environments. The book includes chapters on:
  • the business case for electronic records retention
  • a cost-benefit analysis for retaining versus scheduling and purging electronic records
  • desktop environments
  • e-mail retention
  • Web environments
  • digital preservation / long-term data retention
  • legacy data
  • legislation and court cases
  • case studies
This book also addresses the implications of:
  • the international records management standard, the first-ever global standard on records management, which endorsed the concept of records retention as a best practice for managing the life cycle of information (ISO 15489 - 1 Information and Documentation — Records Management — Part 1: General)
  • the U.S. Department of Defense standard prescribing requirements pertaining to records management software applications (DoD 5015.2-STD, “Design Criteria Standard for Electronic Records Management Software Applications”)
  • the U.S. Internal Revenue Services-issued Revenue Procedure 98-25, which imposes certain long-term data retention requirements on corporate taxpayers
