Access week

Lot of focus this week on access to information, and how managing access is a key element of information governance.  Here’s another one.

Bloomberg Terminal Outage Roils Trading,” Wall Street Journal, April 18, 2015 B5.  Traders worldwide scramble to communicate when one of their primary trading and communications platform shuts down for a few hours.  Bloomberg provides a heavily used chat function in a heavily regulated industry.

Would your employees be able to continue to communicate if your email went down?  Would that communication be captured and backed up?  How would you find it later? Are there regulatory or policy prohibitions on the use of  personal email or chat accounts for company business?  Is it secure?  It’s your company’s information, right?
