ARMA is the strongest community of professionals in the information management industry, providing educational resources and networking opportunities at home and around the world.
When it comes to managing an organization’s vital asset – information, ARMA has the most comprehensive approach. We set the standards and best practices that address the full information lifecycle.
ARMA is focused on educating all records management stakeholders as to the role RIM can and should play in the GRC environment to make GRC efforts as effective as possible. A large percent of all GRC controls relate to establishing and maintaining control over some type of documentation or record, so it’s impossible to reach security, privacy, and risk goals effectively without managing the records first.
ARMA joined forces with the UCF to promote Records Information Management (RIM) and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) interaction. The Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles® (the Principles), developed by ARMA International are the established best practices of information governance and are often cited in case law.
ARMA integrated the Principles into the Unified Compliance Framework (accessible through the Common Controls Hub) to help information governance, risk management, and compliance professionals deliver end-to-end records management services in their organizations.
The integration of the Principles into the UCF facilitates complying with the Principles, and optimizes the interface between RIM and GRC.
