Description

My portion (70% or so) of the webinar today, sponsored by Google. I'm more pro-SaaS/Cloud than not, but there are many things to consider here. This is not my usual graphic heavy, rapid-fire style - was for a webinar, and these platforms don't like crushing 150 slides into 50 minutes. :(

The Growing Elephant eDiscovery is a clear driver of investment in e-mail archiving Without proactive processes and systems, every discovery request risks being chaotic and risk-laden Mitigate risk with a solid foundation, and plan for future improvement

Governance It's not enough to state that e-mail that meet criteria x, y, z "shall be placed into the archive" Compliance is verification of stated policies of procedures Without verification of compliance, you do not have Governance (Train and) Trust… but verify

Visibility What makes e-mail management of any kind troubling? Lack of visibility into the actual contents of e-mail Smoking guns Outdated versions of content being passed via e-mail, when current versions exist in another repository A measure of what % of e-mail is useful vs. filler/garbage/CYA

Complexity of Control From a scalability and management point of view Less is More Apply solutions where you can affect the most inputs/outputs at once Manual processes should be avoided as much as possible Perimeter Core Content

From a scalability and management point of view

Less is More

Apply solutions where you can affect the most inputs/outputs at once

Manual processes should be avoided as much as possible

Key Example - Litigation Hold Which would you rather have? Broadcast e-mail: "Please do not delete any e-mail relating to Client X. Retain copies until further notice." Apply a rule to thousands of local inboxes. Apple a rule to clusters of the core e-mail servers. Apply a rule to a centralized repository.

Who do you Trust, Technically? As a former CTO and (reformed) paranoid security guy, let me ask… who holds the keys to your e-mail kingdom? The Sysadmin? When your e-mail archiving system is being accessed, do you know by whom, and why? When messages have been manipulated, deleted, obscured, overwritten?

Who Watches the Watchers? Who should have rights, and what should the rights be? With e-mail being one of the most ripe areas for the discovery of evidence, e-mail must be untampered if you wish to survive lawsuits IT may "run" the infrastructure and even "own" the solution, but the business owns the content and is liable for abuses and misuses
