  1. Does Capstone advocate using cloud-based storage? Does cloud-based storage have any significant advantages or risks for the Capstone approach to email archiving?

  2. Lawrence Giffin

    How did NARA determine the need for this broader retention policy for emails? Were studies or surveys conducted? Are there data to support the Capstone approach in regards to the retention of permanent emails and compliance with schedules and laws that govern records retention? I ask because we’re very interested in a similar approach for our institution (a public university), but we may have trouble convincing our counsel’s office and the state agency that approves our retention schedule without some data to point to. Thanks.
