Every business is different but based on the You Tube video it is clearly defined that business should store and protect certain documents. Financial documents and documents that contribute to the day to day activities should be stored and protected to prevent thefts, unauthorized viewing, and natural disasters. According to the video if there are only hard copies of these documents it is important to make e-copies to provide a back up in case of a loss. Hard copies should be properly secured and somewhere and somehow to prevent destruction from natural causes. There were links provided along with the video that provide tools and information about the standards and best practices for information governance. Since every business is different these resources provide guidelines. One of the links http://www.arma.org/r2/standards-amp-best-practices#Standards shows best practices and generally accepted record keeping principles. The article from Intuit http://quickbooks.intuit.com/r/money/what-you-need-to-know-about-small-business-record-keeping/ provided information for the video and also provides best practices for record management and protection.
4:Do you think perceptions of American Muslims and Muslims in general have changed since 9/11? If so, are these changes justified? Why? If not, why do you believe they have not changed?
5:Before World War I and II, anti-Semitism was more prevalent than it is today. Does anti-Semitism still exist? In what forms?
6:I know they have changed. Before 9/11 we never really said much about someone being Muslim. Now, everyone seems to think that they’re all terrorists or generally avoid them. They make judgments of Muslims and their religion based off of the media instead of actually getting to know them. I had a Muslim girl in my class in High school. She was really nice to anyone who actually attempted to include her. However, I noticed that even a few of the people who would talk to her seemed stiff and unnatural around her simply because she wore the head scarf (I’m sorry, I don’t remember what it’s called.). I watched everyday as people who didn’t even know her crossed the hall to avoid her and then have to cross back just to go to class. It made my heart hurt every time I saw it because she’s a really sweet person who has the right ideals at heart, but just because of her religion, people didn’t even want to try to get to know her.
