23 March 2012: The National Archives of Australia has launched the Digital Continuity Plan. The plan is a key element of a new whole-of-government policy on digital transitionthat will see all Australian Government agencies move to a comprehensive digital information and records management regime.
According to the National Archives: ”Digital continuity ensures information is complete, available and useable by those with a need for it. It also ensures the information is not kept for longer than needed. Information is useable when you can:
- find it when you need it
- open it when you need it
- work with it in the way you need to
- understand what it is and what it is about, and
- trust that it is what it says it is.’
