Governance & Compliance

Assure Corporate, Industry, and Regulatory Compliance

Modern enterprises may face more than 10,000 legal and regulatory requirements that require a comprehensive and responsive information governance and records management program. Within the enterprise domain, organizations often implement information governance polices and extensive compliance controls to protect the organization from business, legal and regulatory compliance risk.

And while many enterprises have implemented compliance archiving and supervisory controls around their employees email communications, there is a growing realization in the IT and governance communities that a significant portion of employee communications internally, with partners, and with customers, have shifted to digital channels - which notably all operate independently outside the perimeter of the enterprise firewall. For example, employees may now routinely converse and share artifacts on collaboration networks like Slack, Yammer and IBM Connections; account teams may work sales opportunities, and with partners, on a variety of enterprise cloud apps such as SalesForce, Microsoft SharePoint, or Veeva; marketing, sales and HR may engage customers, prospects, and employees on social media networks likeFacebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn; much of international relies on mobile chat apps such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Skype, Jabber or Telegram for all of their business communications. 

Yet with the embrace of  social media and other digital channels that operate beyond the perimeter of enterprise firewall, legal and compliance officers often lack adequate visibility into employee communications, social postings and other digital activities to understand and manage the internal and external risk exposures posed by these activities.  From a governance and compliance perspective, some of the key digital risk exposures include:

  • Account Onboarding & Offboarding  As employees and partners come and go,  account access and authorizations need to be tightly managed for information security; often these digital account controls are not integrated with corporate directories which makes it more difficult to manage.
  • Business and regulatory compliance – Certain industries are governed by internal business policies and/or regulatory requirements to supervise all electronic communications (which includes social media posting), as well as preserving user activity and all content for archival retention, audits and potential litigation and e-discovery.
  • Data Security & Privacy Concerns – Privileged information or personally identifiable information (PII) is shared, perhaps innocently, but in violation of data security or privacy policies.
  • Brand & Reputation Exposure – Often the target of social engineering campaigns or deliberate sabotage, insider postings potential to do harm to the organization brand;  even seemingly innocent customer postings can result in brand damage.
  • Malicious Message Content – Any content posted to the channel that has potential to do harm to the organization (e.g. racist commentary, links to harmful/malicious websites; insiders are responsible for generating upwards of 50% of malicious content.

Modern enterprises must systematically monitor employee, customer and partner activities across all these diverse channels for compliance.  The stakes are high. Failure to implement effective digital risk management strategies poses massive consequences for brand reputation, revenue and profitability; regulatory fines & penalties; shareholder lawsuits and other litigation exposure.
