Digital sustainability is a concern for any organisation investing time and money in preserving digital files. But digital files are vulnerable: hardware ages, errors can be made when copying files and file formats can become unreadable in the future. On top of that there is always the possibility that the integrity of digital files is affected as a result of human errors.
This score model helps you to map the possible risks and threats that may occur when using and storing digital information. The result will be a report that brings out the strong and weaker points of the way you have organised your digital information. Recommendations in order to minimise both the risks and threats are provided where possible.
It is important to address the risks and threats in a systematic way. First start for each cluster with trying to get out of the ‘red zone’. Often major threats can already be eliminated by taking some targeted measures. In a next phase some less urgent measures can be taken. This way, the safeguarding of your digital repository will grow systematically until an acceptable level of security is achieved.
