The National Archives (UK) is exploring the creation of a new evidence base for Digital Preservation Risk. 

An evidence based risk model is a fundamental tool in building inclusive digital archival practice for the future, and The National Archives team proposes a new approach to trust, offering a “bottom-up” data driven alternative to the familiar standards-based approaches, which cannot readily accommodate diverse contexts and different priorities.

This webinar will provide an overview of the National Archives' work in this area, presenting a framework for describing and explaining a complex and interdependent map of risk events, risk management actions and impact on preservation outcomes. The work will allow the comparison and prioritization of different types of threats to the digital archive with potential impact in different areas. 


  • Sonia Ranade, Head of Digital Archiving at The National Archives, UK
  • Alec Mulinder, Head of Digital Risk and Standards at The National Archives, UK
