In Post-Enron Era, E-Mail Governance Still A Challenge

In Post-Enron Era, E-Mail Governance Still A Challenge

InformationWeek, March 6, 2008

Everyone knows that the world is beginning to go digital, however why are so many companies procrastinating the adoption of retention policies? With the volume of emails growing out of control in some places, for example, it’s critical that companies take the time to form an action plan detailing how to properly manage it all.

“The cost of compliance is rapidly rising, and ad-hoc efforts to address compliance haven’t really succeeded,” said Chris Bradley, marketing chief of MessageGate.

We find this interesting to know, considering the fact that compliance rules were put in place to help companies save themselves from future litigation headaches. So why not show some appreciation and establish a few ground rules now to prepare for battle?

We think Bradley sums our thoughts up well: “Rather than keep your head in the sand,” concluded Bradley, “companies need to start applying policies and prepare for the inevitable.”
