Ephemeral Messaging: Compliance Strategies & Approaches For International Businesses
With the rapidly expanding use of “ephemeral messaging” platforms (Snapchat, Whatsapp, Wechat, Telegram, and Signal) for business-related communications, companies are faced with new questions about how they meet their regulatory and legal obligations to monitor and preserve business-related communications. While the basic regulatory and legal obligations are not new, the fundamental nature of these platforms and how people use them frustrates traditional approaches to document preservation and regulatory compliance. As a result, many companies rely on outdated strategies that do not meet modern expectations.
Panelists from Paul Hastings and Michael Cowell, Senior Manager - Deloitte Discovery, Deloitte Financial Advisor Services, will share a range of perspectives encompassing how regulators and law enforcement perceive these challenges across a range of industries, include highly-regulated ones like financial services, the significant consequences when companies do not adequately address them, and the available technical and compliance strategies to reduce this risk.
