National Archives and Record Administration to Present at GSMCON 2019

Government social media professionals will be descending on Nashville, Tennessee, from April 2-4, 2019 for the 2019 Government Social Media Conference (GSMCON). In total, close to 1,000 social media coordinators, communicators, elected officials, marketers, law enforcement officials, emergency managers, vendors, and representatives from major social media networks will be attending the event.

PageFreezer will also be there—we’re both an exhibitor and an event sponsor. In addition, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be sponsoring a presentation by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).  

Government Social Media Conference (GSMCON) 2019 will be held in Nashville.

Kristen Albrittain—a member of NARA’s social media team who specializes in policy, terms of service agreement negotiations, and corporate records management for social media—will be delivering a talk entitled Getting a Handle on Records Management for Social Gov.

During the talk, she’ll be discussing how to capture and manage records in accordance with NARA guidelines. The session will specifically look at:

  • How social media fits into the Federal Records Act.
  • Practical options for capture and management of content.
  • The challenges of writing a schedule for dynamic content.

If you’re attending GSMCON this year, we’d love for you to join us for this informative session. It’ll be taking place on Tuesday, April 2 at 2pm. The venue is Jackson EF. As mentioned, we’re also exhibiting at the event, so visit us at Booth D and say hello.

Visit our government webpage for more information, or read our blog to find out why we were chosen by the National Archives & Records Administration for all social media archiving. You can also have a look at our social media archiving product page, or simply request a demo to experience it for yourself.

More Legal Lessons Learned: 5 Times Social Media Evidence Was Denied in Court

Digital content (like web pages, Facebook posts, and tweets) is increasingly being submitted as evidence during legal matters—but it isn’t always being admitted by courts. As with any other form of evidence, digital evidence needs to meet a certain standard in order to be deemed admissible—and in many cases this comes down to how the evidence was collected and authenticated. If the collection and authentication process wasn’t handled correctly—and the method employed didn’t prove authenticity beyond any reasonable doubt—the evidence typically would not be accepted.

Why You Should Use SHA-256 in Evidence Authentication

In a previous article, we discussed why hash values are crucial in evidence collection and digital forensics. Following on from that, it’s worth discussing why Pagefreezer specifically makes use of the SHA-256 hashing algorithm when applying a digital signature to one of our records.
