The Role of
Audit and Certification
in Digital Preservation

ERPANET is pleased to announce its workshop on the role of audit and
certification in digital preservation. This three-day workshop,
co-hosted by the Stadsarchief Antwerpen, will be held in Antwerpen
(Belgium) on April 14-16, 2004.

The workshop will explore the purposes of audit and certification
and examine their use within digital preservation. Issues will
include: the implementation of audit frameworks and standards;
corporate roles and responsibilities; and, experiences of audit
(financial management, government, and information systems).
Practical examples from various environments will be offered to
stimulate discussion of the issues involved.

The target audience for this workshop is wide. Some anticipated
participants are: managers with the remit to monitor the successful
implementation of policies in their organisations; auditors
themselves wishing to learn about standards and frameworks for
conducting an audit with regard to digital preservation; and, staff
involved in the implementation of a digital preservation programme
wishing to explore methods of ensuring authenticity and reliability.

Participants will learn about the value of an auditing framework in
the management of digital information, and will be equipped to
implement measures in their own organisations.
