Email is the dominant electronic communication medium for businesses. Recent industry research shows that the typical office worker sends and receives around 112 email messages per day. Every one of these messages leaves behind a digital trail of potentially sensitive information. Improper disclosure of messages could put a company at risk. Moreover, companies in regulated industries, such as financial services, are required to retain records for all of their electronic stored communications, and to review their retained emails regularly for policy and privilege violations. Regulators expect companies to not only have compliance programs in place but to also demonstrate that these programs are effective regarding email archiving.
In addition to the security and compliance-related risks introduced by email and other communications methods, companies face legal risks. According to market research firm Gartner, 25% of enterprises worldwide were required to respond to at least one lawful intercept, criminal, or civil suit in 2011. Nearly all E-Discovery actions target email as a key source of ESI. But complying with E-Discovery requirements can be costly and complex. With their electronic communications fragmented across multiple messaging systems, desktop personal storage files, and servers, most companies don’t know where their key ESI resides, its importance to the business, or how to manage it in a forensically sound way
