This session will describe how the Digital Preservation Capability Maturity Model© (DPCMM) complements business planning and risk management methodologies, to proactively engage stakeholders and advance electronic records and long-term access to digital content. The Digital Preservation Capability Maturity Model© (DPCMM) which was first introduced in 2007, offers 15 digital preservation elements and corresponding metrics that are based on selected specifications of international standards (ISO 14721 and ISO 16363) and best operational practices.  These elements can be used to assess an organization's readiness, benchmark against standards and peer organizations, and articulate preservation objectives for long-term and permanent electronic records.  Once the current state capabilities have been established an incremental digital preservation capability improvement strategy and multi-year plan can be charted. Over the last seven years DPCMM has been used in a variety of different sectors and organizational settings, including all of the US state and territory archives.
