From the mid-1990s onwards I have been involved in a number of government led initiatives to review and revise information rights law and compliance standards, including data protection, freedom of information and the information security standard ISO 27000, rolling these out on the ground in workplaces.


I am Chair of the Forum on Archives and Records Management Education and Research. I am Joint Editor of the international Records Management Journal.
