Document Retention and Destruction Policies for Nonprofits is brought to you by Lorman
The proper development, implementation and use of records management policies will help to prevent compliance issues for your nonprofit.
Many organizations are out of compliance with best practices around information governance, due to the proliferation of electronic information and the rising risks commensurate with it. Nonprofits often face the same kinds of litigation risk, regulatory risk, and data breach risk that for profit organizations do, and operating routinely with large amounts of excess data also means additional costs and loss of productivity that nonprofits can ill afford. This topic will explain how to structure an information governance program that incorporates best practices to lower these risks. The material will review the policies and procedures that each organization should incorporate, and how to implement them in practice.
