Email archiving violations net LPL Financial a $9 million fine

WSJ reported that LPL Financial Holdings was fined $7.5 million by the FINRA, as well as creating a $1.5 million compensation fund for its clients.

Note here that all that is required is a reasonable endeavour by a corporation to comply, FINRA doesn’t expect a perfect solution and a fine can be avoided by making an effort.

New Legal Clarity to come to eDiscovery Requests

Where eDiscovery is concerned, we have seen increasing legal clarity, credibility and standards of practice. Where there has not been legal clarity is in the area of government searches and acquisitions of electronic communication.

The issues lie in clarifying what permissions are needed to obtain company or individual’s information when it is hosted on a third party server. With hosted email and cloud-based email archiving growing in popularity every day, this legal clarity on government acquisitions is long over due.

Email Archiving Keeps Record When the Heat is on

Records are important. Whether it’s a world record in sport or a record of a conversation, as a species we’re quite keen on keeping track of them. Currently, the Miami Heat are on course to break the NBA record for the most consecutive wins. With 26 wins in a row so far, they are only eight away from matching the all-time record. How do we know this? Because someone, somewhere, once said, “Hey, wouldn’t it be a good idea if we recorded all of this, just in case we want to reference it again?” Without records we would never be able to look back on something or recover information. Just as a stopwatch records a marathon runner, an email archive keeps track of all communication flying in and out of your business’ system.

Email Archiving: It’s as Easy as G-O-O-G-L-E

We’re all reliant on search engines. Every day we use them to find websites and answer life’s troubling questions, like ‘who am I?’, ‘where do we come from?’ and ‘where can I watch videos of cats dancing to Gangnam Style?’. Search engines serve a very important function, so it is important that they are user friendly. If using Google was complicated, people wouldn’t use it. The simplicity of typing in a word or phrase and getting an immediate answer is priceless. This is the same reason email archiving is so beneficial to businesses. Just as with Google, you don’t need to be a tech-whizz to master email archiving.

Easy to Use

An email passes through a company’s spam filters. The email archiving system then takes the email and stores the message and its attachments. If you want to access that message at a later date, it’s as simple as entering a search in to the archiving program and hitting search. It really is that easy.
