Ohio Missing Files Case Latest Reason for Records Protection Plan
ARMA International this week reported that a missing-records incident in Athens County, Ohio, could jeopardize a $350,000 reimbursement for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) work.
The Athens County Engineer’s Office records inherited by the new county engineer, Jeff Maiden, are allegedly missing or destroyed; the situation has triggered a sheriff’s investigation. Maiden suggests the files were sabotaged.
ARMA points out in the article that to help prevent such devastating losses, that organizations should have these protections should be in place:
-Vital records protection and disaster recovery plan
-Backup procedures for information important to business continuity
-Frequently tested business continuity plan
-Employee exit procedures, including a protocol for de-activating a departing employee’s access to
critical information data
