IT Staff Don't Understand What a Record Is
A corporate record is defined as something along the following lines: a document that records a transaction or event that's significant to the organization concerned, such as a tax return or an insurance contract.

Or, more formally, the ISO defines records as "information created, received, and maintained as evidence and information by an organization or person, in pursuance of legal obligations or in the transaction of business."
