Iron Mountain participates in industry associations as a way to keep current with emerging standards, best-practice approaches and new technologies in its field. Additionally, involvement in trade groups enables the company to continually improve and to fulfill its leadership responsibility to educate businesses on managing their information and keeping it safe.
One organization central to the field of commercial information management is PRISM International (Professional Records & Information Services Management). PRISM International is comprised of service providers like Iron Mountain who supply their customers with physical and digital information protection, access, retention, storage and disposal. Iron Mountain is proud to have been a founding member since the non-profit formed in the early 1980s.
This year, Iron Mountain's Neal Goldman, vice president of industry relations, was elected president of the Association. A nearly 30-year veteran of the information management industry, Goldman has been a member of PRISM since 1989. In that time, he has served in numerous functions, including as its vice president and as chairman of the government relations committee. Under his direction, PRISM will work in 2008 to expand its global membership and to keep members abreast of ever-growing regulatory affairs impacting the industry.
