Working together: Using GAPP in records management

Integrating GAPP into your records management program can ensure all privacy concerns have been addressed.

A challenge many businesses encounter is how to manage and dispose of the personal information they collect. Generally accepted privacy principles (GAPP) provide a number of best practices regarding how personal information is securely stored, retained and destroyed.

Incorporating GAPP into a records management program can help ensure your clients’ privacy concerns are addressed, while also providing a set of criteria for evaluation. As a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and skilled professional, you can provide strategic guidance to organizations on integrating GAPP standards into records management processes.
