RIM Seminar: Keys to Successful Private and Secure Text Communications and Records Management
When: Wednesday, October 30, 2019, 12pm-1pm
Where: Rosslyn Metro Building
Text messaging has become essential communication in daily life, but it is banned in many government offices, because agencies have no control over the information. In this seminar, our guests from Vaporstream will show agencies how to solve this problem.
The U.S. Marine Corps
The US Marine Corps is fiercely, and justly, proud of its legacy and no less proud of its can-do attitude. One challenge, however, threatened to defeat the leathernecks of the Corps’ small but dedicated History Division: valuable historical materials, some going back to the early 1800s, were rapidly deteriorating.
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac)
Though often thought of as Fannie Mae’s smaller brother, but with nearly $2 trillion in assets and about 5,000 employees, Freddie Mac operates at a level and scale that demands optimal efficiency. Because the mortgage industry is still largely paper-based, Freddie Mac’s massive and daily challenge is to digitize a torrent of documents, but by the summer of 2013 that process had come to a complete stop.
U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA)
The Social Security Administration is awash in data. Programs Operations Manuals (or POMS) filled hundreds of binders and over 140 CD that even predated the internet. In this form the POMS were anything but useful. They were neither 508- nor FOIA-compliant, they were exceedingly difficult to search, and as a practical matter they were all but inaccessible to anyone in any of the SSA's other offices.
National Science Foundation
Succession planning and the need for historical preservation evolved into a requirement for an aggressive digitization program to support the mission of the foundation. Incorporating Edge's comprehensive, state-of-the-art solution has enabled NSF staff to catalog a wide variety of legacy information in a usable & readily accessible digital format.
