“How to Handle RIM Disasters” – presented by Su D. A. Graham, CRM, MLS
As active RIM/IG professionals, we are faced with RIM disasters just about every day. Some are huge and impact a wide area of geography or business. Some are medium and impact a local area or perhaps an entire organization. Some are small, almost routine, and have limited consequences. RIM disasters may not be significant to the rest of the world, but they do impact your RIM/IG world.
This workshop will help you understand RIM disasters and to handle these unanticipated events even if you are not prepared. We will also explore the topic of Vital Records and how these essential records figure into managing a RIM disaster.
Thank you so much to Graham Information Management, Bronze Business Partner and Sponsor of our May Meeting and Workshop!
