Document Management

In Bridgewater CT, an Information Storage Resource

An Anonymous Patron shares this story from the CountyTimes.com of Litchfield, CT, about a company who is helping "thousands of small to mid-sized companies nationwide that wanted to know the right questions to ask records management vendors before they went about choosing which one to use."

"The Web-based business has only been live for a month, and, according to Mr. Giess, nearly a thousand customers have signed up already.
For an annual subscription fee of $89.99, subscribers to this new business can receive practical knowledge for storage and management alternatives as it relates to their records, data files and information.

'We give you the right tools to make the right decisions,' Mr. Giess explained. 'It's an extremely unique service.

'We've had a huge response,' he acknowledged. 'There's nothing out there like this for records management on a subscription basis. It's like one-stop shopping.'"

Document Misclassification Gives Terrorism Defendant Classified Intelligence...

While
it\'s not believed  terrorism
defendant Zacarias Moussaoui read the intelligence
documents before they were removed from his jail cell, the WashingtonPost
declares that \"the incident represents another odd event in the chaotic
case and marks the latest gaffe involving document control at the FBI.\" 
The FBI triple checked his cell to confirm that all of the \"50 classified
FBI reports\" that hadn\'t been properly classified were removed from his
possession. Post journalist Dan Eggen writes:

\"Many of the reports were generated by FBI agents who were
drafted into the Sept. 11 investigation and were not schooled in handling
classified information. They did not properly label the documents, one
FBI official said.\"

ABCNEWS
reported three weeks ago that \"the material — both on disk and as hard
copy documents — was sent to Moussaoui as part of discovery for his legal
defense, said several legal sources, including one at the Justice Department.\"
