The need for email compliance

What do we mean when we say compliance?

In its broadest terms, compliance means the goal of conforming to a certain rule or established guideline. Business compliance is usually set by a number of governmental and regulatory bodies which demand that companies keep up to date and adhere to various data legislation.

If a company breaches these regulations, it can lead to a potential liability case being leveled against it and the risk of financial sanctions. Laws such as Sarbanes Oxley and the Freedom of Information Act have caused a number of high profile cases relating to the non-compliance of user email data.

It is the responsibility of every organization to adhere to regulatory procedures relating to the management of email accounts and to ensure that the retention and deletion of email data is compliant with current legislation.

The best way to do this is to invest in a dedicated email archiving solution. This will ensure that you are providing full data integrity and meeting all necessary *regulatory requirements*to ensure that your organization conforms to email compliance standards.
