A Guide to Keeping E-mail Legal: Four Pillars of Compliance
Email must be protected not only from incoming threats, but it must also be monitored, screened and in some cases, retained for compliance with a host of laws and regulations. This white paper shows you how the bulk of the compliance responsibilities that apply to email systems can be broken down into four fundamental categories, or pillars of compliance, including:
Protect against vulnerabilities from incoming email
- Guard against loss or misuse of private or regulated information in outgoing email
- Archive emails that contain certain kinds of content, for future review or auditing
- Adopt and enforce administrative measures designed to protect email systems from compromise or misuse
This paper will provide basic guidance on how to meet these responsibilities and keep your company use of email systems legal, without interrupting basic business processes.
