A study by Ngulube (2003) also confirmed that disaster plans are not yet a major priority in many archival institutions in South Africa and there are no plans to draw up such plans. This shows that they may lose their records in the event of disaster, which has the potential to disrupt business and, in the process, affect their customers.
