Professional Email Archiving for Government

Tamper-proof email communications and instant recovery in the cloud.

Regulatory Compliance for Government Firms

It’s no longer a matter of if an attack on your email data infrastructure will happen — it’s only a matter of when.

Cyberattacks like ransomware are on the rise. Accidental email file deletion is common. Data breaches, sabotage and cyber thefts are happening every day. In the same way you insure your home or automobile against unexpected losses, smart government agencies and other public sector service firms regularly backup and archive their email communications to both honor government data protection laws and to stay one step ahead of unexpected data loss events.

Backup and compliance Issues facing Government Firms

Regulatory Requirements

US government agencies (as well as many of those who service them) are required to retain electronic communications records, including emails. Not only must they do so in order to satisfy their obligations as employers and potential litigants just like non-government organizations, but government-involved entities must also retain records to comply with regulations and laws that exist at all levels of state, local and national government. Non-US government agencies and service providers have similar legal requirements to safeguard and make accessible electronic records within Office 365.

Adherence, or lack thereof

Many companies doing business with government entities, and even government entities themselves, do not fully adhere to email compliance regulations — and most do this inadvertently. However, ignorance of the law doesn’t mean you’re exempt from the rules. If your government-focused company uses Office 365, data archiving is integral for responding to eDiscovery and regulatory records requests, allowing you to meet your regulatory and legal obligations.

Personal and Public Requests

For example, in a public records request, citizens and advocacy groups have the right to request public information. These obligations are not always easy to fulfill and can place significant strain on government-focused entities. Having an Office 365 backup and archiving service in place would not only help with compliance, but it would also reduce strain on the IT teams tasked with ensuring system and data availability.
