Security is necessary for a digital repository to be trustworthy. This study looks at digital repository staff members’ perceptions of security for Trusted Digital Repositories (TDR) and explores:
- Scholarship on security in digital preservation and computer science literature
- Methodology of the sample, and data collection, analysis techniques
- Report findings; discussion of implications of the study and recommendations
Two standards, DIN 31644 and ISO 16363, draw upon DRAMBORA, an earlier standard, which consisted of six steps for digital repository staff members:
- identify their objectives.
- identify central activities necessary to achieve their objectives and assets.
- align and document risks to their activities and assets.
- assess, avoid, and treat risks by each risk’s probability, impact, owner, and remedy
- determine what threats are most likely to occur and identify improvements required.
- complete a risk register of all identified risks and the results of their analysis.
